There are a number of historical sites including Oswestry Hill Fort, The Old Racecourse, Oswestry Castle, The Old Grammar School, TheCambrian Railway and Offa's Dyke.

The area is well served by a number of respected independent and state schools including Moreton Hall, Oswestry School, Ellesmere College, Packwood Haugh prep school, Adcote School, The Marches school along with Chester and Shrewsbury schools.

Oswestry is well placed for commuting to the West Midlands
conurbation and also the North and West. Gobowen rail station,3 miles from Oakhurst Hall, provides services to Chester and Shrewsbury with connections, for example, to London and other main centres.

Description

Mount Sion originally stood on the site where Oakhurst Hall now
stands. It was later demolished and Oakhurst Hall was built in about 1854 by the Venables family.

The family of Venables, originally of Cheshire, became connected with Oswestry in the 18th century; and one branch resided at Woodhill. Oakhurst Hall was owned by the Venebales family until 1946 when it was sold to Shropshire County Council. In 1948 the hall became the boarding house for the Oswestry Girl's High School, for the children of military personnel living abroad. The present owners converted and renovated Oakhurst Hall in 1986 to create a private residence and separate commercial premises.

Planning Brief
Oakhurst Hall is run principally as a private house with commercial offices. Our clients live in part of the hall with the main body being used for their business. We have spoken with Shropshire Council who, in principle, would not be averse to Oakhurst Hall being returned entirely to a private dwelling, residential subdivision or commercial use. This might involve such entities as a wedding venue or a boutique hotel.
