How to spend a weekend in North Shropshire’s Oswestry and Ironbridge

I spent a couple of days recently in the North Shropshire region, visiting the town of Oswestry with its deli-cafe Niche [pictured above] and the nearby World Heritage Site at Ironbridge.

The story appeared in this weekend’s iNewspaper travel section.

Read an extract here:

This border market town is a good base for exploring North Shropshire and North Wales, with an attractive mix of historic buildings, al fresco cafés and rolling countryside.

Plans for a new passenger rail service, connecting Wrexham and Shropshire to London via the West Midlands, are making headlines locally.

The Wrexham, Shropshire and Midlands Railway, mooted to launch in 2025, would call at Gobowen, Shrewsbury and Telford.

There is even talk of reconnecting Oswestry’s heritage-rail station to its mainline neighbour at Gobowen, three miles north.
