Wilfred Edward Salter Owen was born at Plas Wilmot in Oswestry, Shropshire in March 18, 1893 and was the eldest child of Tom Owen and Susan Shaw. Plas Wilmot was a detached house located at the edge of the market town, peering from behind tall trees, iron gates and garden greenery. Wilfred Owen only lived in Oswestry for four years but had fond memories of Plas Wilmot. When he was twenty, Owen attempted to write a poem that looks back to Plas Wilmot and to himself as the young child mesmerised by the house’s fireplace.
