OswestryOswestry lies in the border county of Shropshire, one of England's least populated and least spoiled counties, stretching from its winding Welsh border to the edge of the urban West Midlands. The remotest and most beautiful parts of the county are the southern and western edges where the twin ridges of Wenlock Edge and the Long Mynd are excellent for walking and hang-gliding. The county town of Shrewsbury sits in a loop of the River Severn, a charming place to visit with some of the best preserved Tudor and Jacobean streetscapes in England. Photo left - Oswestry streets.
