The local area guide to living in Oswestry

Oswestry, in the county of Shropshire, sits just five miles away from the Welsh border, and was claimed alternately by England and Wales throughout the Middle Ages. As such, the town has a heritage mixed between the two, and has Welsh street names as well as English ones.

Named for King Oswald of Northumbria, this charming market town is a conservation area thanks to its unusual architecture and rich history. Timber-framed buildings line a medieval street, combining Georgian townhouses with terraces and churches dating back to the Victorian era.

Notable buildings include the Visitor & Exhibition Centre, originally the site of Oswestry Grammar School that was founded in 1407, and the Grade I-listed Llwyd Mansion. Its border location means there are several nearby castles worth exploring. 

The area is also renowned for its high number of pubs – there are approximately 30 in the small town – and its quirky collection of arts and crafts shops.

With its scenic town centre and surrounding mountains, it’s no surprise that the area has historically served as inspiration to a number of noted artists, musicians and poets.
