A bus ride ...

... from Maesbury Marsh to Oswestry ...
 The Borderland Farmer by Ivor Roberts-Jones born in Oswestry in 1913
Llywd Mansion was built for John Llwyd (Lloyd) of Llanforda in 1604 and restored in 1875.  
The coat of arms belongs to the Emperor of Austria who allowed one of the family to use after distinguishing himself during the crusades.
This Footfalls Project is opposite Wilkinsons shop ...
it was painted by Anna Roberts
 in October 2011 and I think it's fantastic!
Oswestry Guildhall built in 1893 in the style of a Loire Valley chateau is the home of the Town Council and the Attfield Theatre
We found that Oswestry is a fairly typical old market town similar to Ellesmere, Natnwich, Whitchurch, etc; it has a plethora of small individual shops, lots of charity shops and three superstores.
