Where is Oswestry?

In the episode The Man From Oswestry, after Clegg reads the letter, he says Foggy has been in Wales all this time. Later in the pub he tells Big Malcolm that Foggy has just got back from Wales. But Oswestry isn't in Wales, it's in England, isn't it?

It is less than 4 miles to the Welsh Border, and being a supposed army camp maybe part of it spread across the border

I live about 20 mins away and have worked in Oswestry in the past. Oswestry is a border town and in it's history it has been on either side of the border. But it has definitely been in England a long time before the Series began, it's often known as the gateway to Wales. There was an army camp there, it's no longer in use, but often Bargain Hunt is filmed from there as it's often used for antiques fairs. It's often confused with Wales and the football team TNS who are Welsh champions are actually based in Oswestry, so they're English!!!
