Information

The British Ironwork Centre is a free tourist attraction in Oswestry featuring an extensive display of metal sculptures. The family-run business, owned by Clive Knowles, also produces a wide range of homeware and garden-feature metalwork items for sale. The Centre has provided props for various film and television productions and also supplied Buckingham Palace with garden pavilions for its 2013 Coronation Festival.

The Centre’s future was in doubt whilst the National Grid had plans – which have now been scrapped – for pylons in the Centre’s land as part of its Mid Wales Connection programme. During that time the Centre undertook alterations, including converting a warehouse into a showroom, without seeking planning permission. The Centre is in discussions with Shropshire Council regarding the planning issue and also to develop plans for improved access from the A5 road and for the creation of a Capability Brown-style formal garden.

  1. Great photo’s, sounds like a cool place for a visit and made me laugh they just blatted on without planning permission, subversive lot 🙂 Love how they’ve done the Alien and Terminator, but someone needs to sort out Buddha’s ears!
