Oswestry is an ancient market town located in the North of Shropshire close to the English - Welsh Border. Its location as a 'frontier town' has meant the town has seen many civil wars dating back as far as the 11th century. Oswestry was once a strong Welsh settlement and the Castle a frontier outpost.

Today the town is a bustling market town and shopping centre serving North West Shropshire and Mid Wales. Much of its history is still very apparent today with narrow passageways linking streets whose names conjure up images of the past: English Walls, Welsh Walls, The Bailey and the Horse market.

Most of the town centre has been designated a Conservation Area. There are many old timber framed houses, for example Llywd Mansion on Cross Street, the Heritage Centre, the Blackgate, the Fox Inn and the shops along Beatrice Street. Georgian architecture is also well represented, particularly around St Oswald's Church where there are a number of large town houses complete with grand entrance staircases and front doors. It also has a significant Victorian legacy with many of the shop fronts and facades, terraced houses, churches and railway buildings reflecting this period.

Set in the heart of England, Shropshire has earned a reputation as one of the most romantic counties with some of the least congested B-roads to explore. Offering contrasts of scenery, tradition, crafts, atmosphere, myth and heritage, Oswestry is at the centre of these treasures and can be visited and enjoyed all year round. Within easy driving distance are Shrewsbury, Chester, the Welsh Borders, the Marches and Ironbridge, the World Heritage Site.

    Things to see and do -
  • The Old Grammer School - A 15th Century, Grade II listed timber-framed property. Originally the Oswestry Grammar School, founded in 1407. Now contains civic and local items of interest reflecting the long established and magnificent Heritage of Oswestry.
  • Iron Age Fort - There is a large Iron Age fort just to the North of the town maintained by English Heritage. It was started over 2500 years ago. Nowadays, only the Earthworks remain, but it's worth a visit.
  • Racecourse Common - This is at the top of a hill and is the site of an old racecourse. It is possible to walk around the old circuit and there are a number of walks is this area including some through the adjacent Candy Woods. The Offa's dyke path passes through the common and the woods.
  • Offa's Dyke Footpath - This long distance footpath , which goes from Prestatyn to Chepstow along the Welsh border, passes about 3 miles to the west of Oswestry. It is a well maintained footpath and can be picked up at many points in the area. The path follows an ancient earthwork which is thought to have been a defensive dyke built by the Saxon King Offa.
  • Whittington Castle - There are quite a few remains of the castle which can be found in the Centre of Whittington village.
  • Chirk Castle - Chirk Castle is a 700 year old marcher fortress, which commands fine views over the surrounding countryside. It was built in the late 13th century by Roger Mortimer, Justice of North Wales for Edward 1. The castle was sold for 5,000 UK pounds to Sir Thomas Myddelton in 1595 and his descendants continue to live in part of the castle today.
