Our first visit today is to where ‘Shropshire meets Wales’ – the vibrant market town of Oswestry where you can hear Welsh and English voices mingling side by side in the recently voted ‘coolest place to live in England’.  Today is market day with both indoor and outdoor markets to browse.  This afternoon we continue to Shrewsbury packed with timber framed Black & White buildings amongst narrow alleyways surrounded by the River Severn.
