Oswestry Uplands The Oswestry Uplands is one of the smallest Natural Areas and has much greater affinities with areas in Wales than other parts of Shropshire.

The character of the Oswestry Uplands Natural Area lies in the undulating landscape of Carboniferous Limestone hills with calcareous grasslands and occasional rocky outcrops together with steep wooded valleys with marsh and fen habitats on the valley floor. This complex of habitats has resulted in a diverse assemblage of rare and uncommon flora and fauna. Changes in land management practice, however, have caused some decline in the nature conservation interest within the Natural Area.
