Industrial Heritage and transport in Oswestry and the Borderlands is a fascinating mix of history. Thomas Telford certainly left his mark on the Borderlands and, with two UNESCO world Heritage sites at Pontcysyllte and Ironbridge, your visit could concentrate solely on his legacy. But other events shaped our history too and the railways played an important part in those. All of these attractions are working to bring our history to life – discover more here. A day out discovering our railway heritage will take you from The Cambrian Heritage Railways in Oswestry and Llynclys up to Llangollen for some steam nostalgia and then over to the Welshpool and Llanfair Railway.Take a trip through the beautiful Powys countryside as you steam from Welshpool to Llanfair Caereinion and back again.
The restored Hoffman Lime Kiln at Llanymynech is one of only 3 in the country. Its location on the Montgomery Canal can help you begin your exploration of the canals that brought so much prosperity to the region.
Transport takes many forms and the diversity here is second to none. Check the calendar for steam rallies and vintage motor shows. Then onto the most sedate form of transport, as you are pulled along the canal by horse right to its source at the Horseshoe Falls. Slowly across the “stream in the sky’ by narrow boat is another trip not to be missed while you are in the Borderlands.
Why not visit The British Ironworks too?
