Lle Hanes Exhibition

OBHAG members planned and designed a display for the exhibition organised by the Powysland Club at the National Eisteddfod of Wales held at Meifod last August. The Lle Hanes [Local History] tent brought together displays from Local History groups across Montgomeryshire and OBHAG was invited to take part as Oswestry has always been an important centre for the district including a large areas of the adjoining Welsh counties.

Our contribution focused on the old local description of Oswestry as ‘a Welsh place in England’ and provoked some lively discussion. Many thanks to all the members who helped in the production.

The display panels have now returned to Oswestry and can be seen in the Town Museum.
