About Oswestry

One of the most spectacular Iron Age hill forts in Britain stands just outside the town and is evidence that the place has been an important centre of population since pre-history. The 3000 year old settlement of Old Oswestry or Caer Ogyrfan is well preserved and must have been a significant trade and cultural hub.

The town has many Welsh language street and place names and the town's name in Welsh is Croesoswallt, meaning "Oswald's Cross". It eventually became known as Oswald's Tree in English, from which its current English name is probably derived.

In 1190 the town was granted the right to hold a market each Wednesday, with the weekly influx of Welsh farmers the townsfolk were often bilingual. After the foot and mouth outbreak in the late 1960s the animal market was moved out of the town centre but the produce market remains on the Bailey Head. In the 1990s, a statue of a shepherd and sheep was installed in the market square as a memorial to the history of the market site.

Oswestry was the birthplace of the First World War poet Wilfred Owen, sadly killed in action on November 4th 1918, just one week before the signing of the armistice which ended the war. There is a plaque and stone bench dedicated to him in the Town Centre and he will be remembered for works including Dulce et Decorun est, Insensibility and Anthem for Doomed Youth.

What candles may be held to speed them all? 
Not in the hands of boys, but in their eyes 
Shall shine the holy glimmers of good-byes.” Wilfred Owen (1893 – 1918) from Anthem for Doomed Youth

The 2011 Census recorded the population of the civil parish as 17,105 (up almost 10% from 15,613 in 2001) and the urban area as 16,660

Hospitals

The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust in Oswestry provides elective orthopaedic surgery and musculoskeletal medical services. The hospital is located between Oswestry and Gobowen but does not have an A&E department.

There is a Minor Injuries Unit on Thomas Savin Road, near the bus station and the nearest A&E department is at The Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.

Schools

The are several excellent primary schools in the town and the later years schooling is provided by The Marches Academy School, rated as “Good” in all areas in the most recent Ofsted report.

The Town is also home of Oswestry School, an ancient, co-educational independent school founded in 1407.

Transport

The Town is bypassed by the A5 trunk road but this provides important and fast main road links throughout the region with many major centres in the West Midlands, North West of England and North Wales being within easy reach. It is about 75 minutes’ drive to Manchester Airport and there are links to the national rail network from nearby Gobowen Station.
