It is announced that in Shrewsbury the last home of war poet Wilfred Owen is to be given Grade II listed status by English Heritage. His first home, in Oswestry, was given Grade II listed status by English Heritage two years ago. Meanwhile Oswestry Hillfort and its setting, where he completed his military training, may shortly be thrown to the wolves.
