Situated in western Shropshire and one of the oldest towns near the Welsh border, Oswestry is a town with a fruitful and important history. The town is over 3000 years old and is home to one of the best preserved Iron Age forts in Britain, has often played a role in the campaigns for control of the Welsh marches. In the modern day, thankfully there are no more battles going on around the town, and the area is a peaceful and popular place to live.
Regardless of the age or style of the house you are moving into in Oswestry, it is crucial you hire a professional surveyor to analyse the property ensure it adheres to modern requirements and is structurally sound. In the long run the survey done could save you from nasty surprises in the future as a Chartered Surveyor will be able to spot any repairs or possible structural weaknesses before you buy and move in. A HomeBuyer Report covers most needs, but some old properties, of which there are plenty in Oswestry (the town is home to 130 or so listed buildings), will need a more extensive Building Survey.
The town has its fair share of events and attractions to look forward to once you’ve moved in, including the Literature Festival and the Food and Drink Festival, as well as plenty of attractions, such as the Iron Works Museum and the Iron Age Fort. There is something for everyone to do in the town.
