How to Find Us

How to find us ironwork centre map

By Road

 

Travelling by car, coach, or road vehicle is the easiest way to find us. The route you take to us will largely depend on the location that you are travelling from but, as a general guide, we are situated on the A5 just outside of Oswestry Town Centre. We have a number of signs placed just outside of our entryway to help guide you onto site. The easiest way to find us is by putting SY11 4JH into your sat nav or into any free online map service (we recommend Google Maps for accurate journey timing and the most up-to-date traffic information).

If you are coming from Chester:

Head towards Wrexham Rd, A483
Continue straight-on through three more roundabouts into Wales
At the fourth roundabout, take the 2nd exit onto the A5
Continue straight-on through three more roundabouts
At the fourth roundabout (Mile End), take the 1st exit
We are located at the 3rd left, just after the large ‘Parking’ sign

If you are coming from Shrewsbury:

Head for the A5
Once on the A5, continue straight-on at every roundabout
We are located to the right shortly after the Oswestry Golf Club 

By Rail

 

Our nearest train station is in Gobowen, which is approximately five miles from the Centre. There are several transport links from Gobowen train station to the Centre, including buses and taxis. Buses vary depending on your time of arrival (see below for further information). There are no taxi ranks located at Gobowen station, but there are a few in the Oswestry area that are regularly used to transport people from the station in and around the town. For help booking train tickets, we recommend using Trainline for the best prices, routes and journey times.

By Bus

 

Unfortunately, no bus services currently stop at the Centre. Depending on where you are travelling from, the best way to get to the Centre is to catch the 70 or 70A from Oswestry towards Shrewsbury. This bus service leaves directly from the Oswestry bus station and has a stop at Queenshead PH, which is a one mile walk away from the Centre (see below for further information). This service is operated by Arriva and the full timetable can be viewed here

If you are using a bus service as a travel link between Gobowen train station and the Centre, there are several buses you can take to link you onto a 70 or 70A service. We recommend planning your transport link route using Google Maps as this is the most accurate and up-to-date way to ensure that you get here safely.

On Foot

 

As we are located on the very busy A5 road with minimal footpaths, we advise all those who are looking to visit us on foot to be very careful whilst doing so. We are located approximately three miles from Oswestry Town Centre. If you are walking to us from the Queenshead PH bus stop, you’ll need to head towards the A5 then turn right. From here, you will need to follow the footpath until you reach the Centre entryway. Please be aware of vehicles on both the left and right-hand side when walking up the drive. There are several points of entry along the drive, but we recommend following it all the way up until you reach the main carpark. This will bring you through to our official ‘Meet & Greet’ entrance.

By Air

 

Our nearest airports are Liverpool John Lennon (51 miles) and Birmingham International (75 miles). If you are using public transport to get to us from either of these airports, we recommend using the rail service to Gobowen train station as the first leg of your journey. Both airports have an ‘in-house’ train station with links across the country. For more information about train schedules, ticket prices and journey times, we recommend using Trainline.

If you are travelling via helicopter, landing sites are available upon special request. Please contact us in advance of your planned journey to ensure that we have available space to accommodate you and your helicopter at your desired date and time.
