Oswestry to be promoted as a tourist destination

Published on : Saturday, June 24, 2017

Oswestry tA new group has been set up to uphold Oswestry as a tourist destination, capitalizing on the appeal of Britain’s finest hill forts. The Oswestry Heritage Gateway said that it aims to promote the historic, northern gateway to the town which takes in the Old Oswestry hill fort, Wat’s Dyke, the Cambrian Railway, Park Hall, Whittington, and the surrounding countryside.

 
Spokesman, Kate Clarke said, “The Oswestry Heritage Gateway is seeking to harness nationally important historical and cultural assets as a catalyst for new tourism and economic opportunities for the town and surrounding settlements. It offers huge potential to reinforce the area’s appeal as a visitor destination in its own right, by promoting the area to tourists who are already travelling along the A5 corridor to the World Heritage Site attractions at Chirk and onwards to North Wales.”

 
A meeting will be held on July 10 at Hermon Chapel in Oswestry, starting at 7pm for those interested in getting involved.
