Welcome to Oswestry
Oswestry is an ancient market town located in North West Shropshire close to the English - Welsh Border. Its strategic position as a 'frontier town' may have given it a turbulent history but now it is Shropshire’s second biggest town and is a locally important shopping and agricultural centre. Oswestry still retains the intimacy of a rural town serving local people and is home to a number of specialist and independent shops and the ever popular street markets. Charming passageways link streets through town conjuring up images of the past: English Walls, Welsh Walls, The Bailey and the Horsemarket and the beautiful park is a focus all year.
