The Old Racecourse Common, Oswestry, Shropshire, SY10 7PL. 11:00-13:00
This is our favourite location for a Hector’s Walk, and May is a particularly wonderful time in this beautiful setting with the bluebells in bloom. The Racecourse is situated on the B4580 Road to Llansilin from Oswestry. From the town centre follow the road out of the town and up the steep hill for about 2 miles. At the crest of the hill follow the signs to the Racecourse Common.
The Racecourse Common was a popular venue for horse racing until 1848. The figure of eight circuit is about a mile and half long and offers spectacular views over Shropshire and Wales.
