Skipton has been teaching another historic town how to make the best of its heritage and commercial assets.
The Oswestry Chamber of Commerce executive team visited the town on a fact-finding mission to discover how it has created a powerful identity which has had a positive impact on the local economy.
The invitation came from Craven District Council chief executive Paul Shevlin, a former chief executive of Oswestry Borough Council.
Oswestry Chamber chairman Heather Noble said: “We were given great insight into how the two-tier authority manages its key assets like the high street, its vibrant market and many festivals and the important role played by the town’s business leaders. It was a hugely beneficial trip that gave us a host of ideas.”
Best of Oswestry director and chamber member John Waine said: “Skipton has much in common with Oswestry in that it too has a wonderful heritage and physical assets.”
