Welcome to Oswestry & the Welsh Borders
The vibrant border market town of Oswestry sits between the patchwork plains of Shropshire and the hill country that is Wales. Since The Middle Ages Oswestry has been a magnet for trade from both sides of the border. From wool to cattle, the markets have brought riches and visitors to this busy town.
Nowadays the goods may be more diverse but the streets still come alive on market days. Listen – can you here the sounds of trade? Sometimes Welsh, sometimes English, accents local or from further afield, our little town positively buzzes!
Recently voted one of the ‘coolest places to live in England’, you may wonder what makes Oswestry different. We locals like to think that it is the combination of a charming medieval town and an eclectic mix of independent shops and fine eating establishments that creates an ambience that is special.
