Oswestry and The Borderlands for nature lovers

Oswestry and The Borderlands are perfect for nature lovers.
From the grandest gardens at National Trust properties such as Chirk Castle, Erddig House and Powis Castle to the individual attraction of  gardens such as Brownhill House at Ruyton- XI-Towns and the Derwen at Gobowen, Oswestry and the Borderlands offer a diverse mix of gardens to explore.
The National Garden Scheme flourishes here in Shropshire. Why not visit local gardens and allotments on their open days?
If you are in Oswestry, you can’t miss Cae Glas Park right in the centre of town. A multi gold award winner in Heart of England in Bloom and recently awarded much loved status by Fields in Trust, the park glows through the summer with wonderful bedding displays.
Visit Oswestry street market on Wednesday and Saturdays in spring and summer to find the best selection of plants for miles around.
More than that though, if you prefer your planting on the wild side, take a trip to some of the tucked away spots such as Ifton Meadows or Jones Rough and you may be in time to see the spring time masses of wild garlic and bluebells or even spot a wild orchid.
Take a walk up Old Oswestry Hill Fort on a sunny day to see the wildlife and views. There are woodland walks and interesting plant centres all around Oswestry and make sure you stock up on gardening supplies from our independent market traders and shops.
Oswestry and The Borderlands is an adventure for nature lovers.
