New sighting of Oswestry’s Town Wall?
A narrow services trench running alongside English Walls close to the junction revealed a section of stone wall more than one metre wide at a depth of about 0.25 metres. The wall impeded the progress of the trench which was almost immediately back filled.
OBHAG members, alerted by Oswestry’s grapevine, arrived just in time to affirm that the wall’s construction resembled that of known sections of the town wall. Further investigation would be needed to draw more definite conclusions, but we were able to take some pictures for future reference.
