Oswestry Shropshire Council

This Welsh Borderlands market town is one of Britain’s oldest settlements, able to trace its history back for 3,000 years, with a present-day reputation for being very friendly.

It is also the fabled birthplace of Guinevere (King Arthur’s Wife) and actual birthplace of Wilfred Owen. Old Oswestry Hill Fort is where Owen completed his basic training before heading to the Western Front where he wrote his poetry.
