A Brief History of Burton

a 3.5 mile, 2 hour guided walk through the centre of the town mixes the urban and rural (wear walking shoes!) and follows in the footsteps of Burtonians from the arrival of Saint Modwen, the establishment of the medieval abbey, the industrialisation of brewing in the town, through to more recent visits by artist L.S.Lowry and The Sex Pistols. We hope that our walk will stimulate the imagination of visitors and residents alike and as we make our way around the town we’ll never see our surroundings in the same way again!
