Wollaston is a small village in Shropshire, England, only a quarter of a mile from the Welsh border.
It is believed that Old Tom Parr was born in, or near, to the village at Winnington at The Glyn, according to the inscription on a brass plaque in the church.
There is a beacon here, by the church, that is to be lit in case of an invasion from Wales. Immediately west of the church are the earthwork remains of Wollaston Castle, a motte-and-bailey castle.
Half a mile south-east near Bretchel is the site of a small Norman motte castle known as The Beacon.
