Message from Heather Hidden, OBHAG
Oswestry and Border History and Archaeology Group
Friday 13th February 7.30 pm Methodist Church Hall, Castle Street, Oswestry
Talk by OBHAG president John Pryce-Jones followed by the AGM
'Oswestry's Castle Bank'
Its history over the past 200 years.
The talk will focus on the more recent history of the Castle Bank, starting with the 'slighting' of the castle immediately after the Civil War, taking in the various descriptions of the castle remains by travellers and antiquarians in the 18th and 19th centuries, looking at how the Castle Bank gradually became surrounded by buildings as Oswestry grew in size in Victorian times, and at its development as an arboretum and public park.
