Areas we cover throughout Oswestry and the surrounding area;
Oswestry is a market town that dates back to the Iron Age, with evidence suggesting it was formed sometime between 800 BC and AD 43. During the Saxon era, the Battle of Maserfield is thought to have been fought in Oswestry in 642, between the Anglo-Saxon kings Penda of Mercia and Oswald of Northumbria. The Oswald of Northumbria was killed in this battle and according to legend, one of his arms was carried to an ash tree by a raven, and miracles were subsequently attributed to the tree, as Oswald was considered a saint. This being the reason why it is believed that the name of the site is derived from a reference to “Oswald’s Tree”.
Modern day Oswestry is still indeed a market town and there has been a concerted effort to protect the heritage of the town, with many buildings being subject to careful conservation.
This can be seen in the town centre with many buildings still displaying similar aesthetics to those prevalent in the Victorian era. Oswestry has a varied economic base now, with the three largest sectors being retail, education and manufacturing. Being situated next to the A5, A483 and A495 provide Oswestry with great links to both North and South Wales, as well as the Midlands and beyond. The town’s main sports club is The New Saints F.C.; a professional football club that play in the Welsh Premier League. They are one of only a few English teams to play in the Welsh Leagues, and have enjoyed much success in the Welsh Premier League winning it an incredible 11 times, with the last 7 of those coming consecutively between 2009 and 2017.
