Ryknild Street , a Roman road, ran north-east through what later became the parish of Burton, linking camps at Letocetum (Wall ), near Lichfield
, and Derventio (Little Chester) , near Derby

Between 666 and 669 Wilfrid , the pro-Roman bishop of York, exercised episcopal functions in Mercia
, whose Christian king, Wulfhere , gave him land in various places, on which he established monasteries . Burton was almost certainly one of the sites: the name Andresey given to an island in the river Trent near the parish church means "Andrew's isle" and refers to a church there dedicated to St Andrew. The island is associated with the legend of St Modwen or Modwenna, an Irish abbess. It is likely that any surviving religious house would have been destroyed during the Danish incursion into the area in 874. Place names indicate Scandinavian influence, and several personal names of Scandinavian origin were still used in the area in the early 12th century. In 1003 a Benedictine abbey was established on a new site on the west bank of the Trent at Burton by Wulfric Spott , a thegn possibly descended from King Alfred
King Alfred
. He is known to have been buried in the abbey cloister in 1010, alongside his wife.

Burton Abbey was mentioned in Domesday book
Domesday book
, where it was said to control lands in Appleby Magna in Leicestershire
, and Mickleover , Winshill , Stapenhill , Coton in the Elms , Ca(u)ldwell (in Stapenhill Parish) and Ticknall , all then in Derbyshire . The monastery was the most important in Staffordshire
and by the 1530s had the highest revenue. It is known that there were frequent Royal visits to the abbey, including those by William I , Henry II and Edward I
Edward I
. In the 12th and 13th centuries streets were laid out off the west side of High Street, the earliest being New Street, which stretched from the abbey gates towards the line of Ryknild Street. Horninglow Street at the north end of High Street was part of a major east-west route using the bridge over the river.

A royal charter was granted on 12 April 1200 by King John to the Abbot
to hold a market in Burton every Thursday. This charter was later renewed by King Henry III and King Edward IV
King Edward IV
There were four annual fairs for trade in horses, cattle and produce: on Candlemas Day , 5 April, Holy Thursday , and 29 October (the feast of St Modwen) although as in other British towns this practice has now died out. An early photograph of the 36 arch medieval Burton bridge. The bridge was an important crossing point and was the site of battles in 1322 and 1643. It was demolished and replaced in 1863.

While Burton's great bridge over the Trent was in poor repair by the early 16th century it served as "a comen passage to and fro many countries to the grett releff and comfort of travellyng people", according to the abbot . The bridge was the site of two battles, first in 1322 when Edward III defeated the rebel Earl of Lancaster and also in 1643 when the Royalists captured the town during the First English Civil War . Sir William Paget was granted the lands at Burton Abbey in 1546 by Henry VIII and expanded the Manor House
Manor House
using materials from the abbey. The family's ownership was later confiscated after being implicated in a Catholic plot against Elizabeth I , but was restored to his descendant William 6th Lord Paget .

Under Henry VIII the abbey was dissolved in 1539, to be refounded in 1541 as a collegiate church for a dean (who had been the last abbot) and four prebendaries . It was again dissolved in 1545 and granted to Sir William Paget. Paget began planning to expand the Manor House within the abbey precincts, known to have existed since at least 1514, into a grand mansion. To provide the materials for this project, the old abbey buildings were to be cannibalised. There were major alterations to the house over the next three centuries. Sir William died in 1563. After his death, the Paget family was implicated in Catholic plots against Queen Elizabeth I , the manor house along with most of the family estates were confiscated, with the Manor House leased to Richard Almond in 1612. Parts of the abbey church may have been retained for parish use, however these were demolished and replaced by a new church in 1719–26. Some fragments remain of the chapter house nearby but little of the rest remains either. Two buildings were converted to residential use - a part known as the Manor House
Manor House
, and the former Infirmary
. The Infirmary
became known as The Abbey, and is now an inn.


The Paget family's lands and title were restored to them by James I in 1602 and they owned considerable estates around Burton for over 150 years. In 1699, William Lord Paget obtained an Act of Parliament to extend navigation on the River Trent from Nottingham
up to Burton, but nothing was immediately done. In 1711, Lord Paget leased his rights to George Hayne , who in 1712 opened the River Trent Navigation and constructed a wharf and other buildings in the precinct of the old abbey. This led to the development of Burton as the major town for brewing and exporting beer , as it allowed Burton beer to be shipped to Hull , and on to the Baltic Sea and Prussia
, as well as to London , where it was being sold in 1712. A number of breweries opened in the second half of the 18th century. The Napoleonic blockade badly affected overseas trade, leading to some consolidation and a redirection of the trade to London
and Lancashire
via canals. When Burton brewers succeeded in replicating the pale ale produced in London, the advantage of the water's qualities allowed the development of the trade of Burton India Pale Ale
(an ale specially brewed to keep during the long sea voyage to India ). New rail links to Liverpool enabled brewers to export their beer throughout the British Empire
British Empire

Burton came to dominate the brewing trade, and at its height one quarter of all beer sold in Britain was produced here. In the second half of the 19th century there was a growth in native breweries, supplemented by outside brewing companies moving into the town, so that over 30 breweries were recorded in 1880. However at the beginning of the 20th century there was a slump in beer sales, causing many breweries to fail; the industry suffered from the Liberal government 's anti-drinking attitudes. This time no new markets were found and so the number of breweries shrank by closure and consolidation from 20 in 1900 to 8 in 1928. After further mergers and buy-outs, just three main breweries remained by 1980: Bass , Ind Coope and Marston\'s .

Burton was home to the Peel family, who played a significant role in the Industrial Revolution . The family home is still visible in the town as Peel House on Lichfield
Street. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II visited the town on 3 July 2002 during her Golden Jubilee celebrations.


Burton is the administrative centre for the borough of East Staffordshire
and forms part of the Burton constituency . The local Member of Parliament is the Conservative Party 's Andrew Griffiths , who has represented the Burton constituency since May 2010. The Conservatives took the seat from Labour in the 2010 general election with an 8.7% swing.

Burton was incorporated as a municipal borough in 1878. The incorporated area was split between the counties of Staffordshire
and Derbyshire - the Local Government Act 1888 incorporated the entirety of the borough in Staffordshire, including the former Derbyshire parishes of Stapenhill and Winshill . It became a county borough in 1901, having reached the 50,000 population required.

It never substantially exceeded the population of 50,000, and at a population of 50,201 in the 1971 census was the smallest county borough in England
after Canterbury
. The Local Government Commission for England
recommended in the 1960s that it be demoted to a non-county borough within Staffordshire, but this was not implemented. Under the Local Government Act 1972 , the town became on 1 April 1974, an unparished area in the new district of East Staffordshire

The town became entirely parished on 1 April 2003, when the parishes of Anglesey , Branston , Brizlincote , Burton , Horninglow and Eton , Shobnall , Stapenhill , and Winshill were created.

Burton parish itself only covers the town centre, with the other parishes covering various suburbs.


Burton is about 109 miles (175 km) north west of London
, about 30 miles north east of Birmingham
, the UK's second largest city and about 23 miles east of the county town Stafford
. It is at the easternmost border of the county of Staffordshire
with Derbyshire, its suburbs and the course of the River Trent forming part of the county boundary. Burton is closer to Derby
(approx. 12 miles) than it is to Stafford. It is also near the south-eastern terminus of the Trent and Mersey Canal . Burton lies within the northern boundary of the National Forest . The town centre is on the western bank of the River Trent in a valley bottom; its average elevation is about 50 metres above sea level; the village of Winshill and the suburb of Stapenhill rise to 130 m and 100 m respectively. ‹ The template below (_Geographic location _) is being considered for deletion.

Burton became a centre for the brewing industry due in part to the quality of the local water, which contains a high proportion of dissolved salts, predominantly caused by the gypsum in the surrounding hills. This allowed a greater proportion of hops, a natural preservative, to be included in the beer, thereby allowing the beer to be shipped further afield. Much of the open land within and around the town is protected from chemical treatment to help preserve this water quality.


There is some confusion as to whether Burton is in the West Midlands or the East Midlands , even though the entire urban centre is southwest of the River Dove , which forms the Derbyshire/Staffordshire boundary. Being situated in Staffordshire, the town officially lies within the West Midlands region. Several factors contribute to the ambiguity of the town's status. The local vernacular shares more similarities with East Midlands English than West Midlands English ; the town was formerly within the East Midlands Utility (electricity/gas) areas, and has Derby
postcodes (DE13-DE15). However, it is served by the BBC Midlands (West Midlands) region, based in Birmingham
and before consolidation exercises formed part of the ITV Central (West) region, again based in Birmingham


The town had an estimated population of 43,784 in the 2001 Census . Stapenhill and Winshill were treated separately and together had a further population of 21,985 according to this source. According to the 2001 census, 71% of the town's population identify themselves as Christian, 12% as atheist or agnostic and 8.5% Muslim. In the 2011 Census, the population of the town, now treated wholly, came to 72,299.



Coors Brewers Maltings Division Shobnall Site, is located on Wellington Road. The maltings were originally built by the world-famous Bass Brewery, which was taken over by the American brewery Coors, around the late 1990s. Main article: Brewers of Burton See also: Burtonisation

For centuries brewing was Burton's major trade, and it is still an important part of its economy.

The town is currently home to eight breweries; Coors Brewers Ltd : formerly Bass Brewers Ltd, and now the UK arm of Molson Coors Brewing Company – which produces Carling and Worthington Bitter ; Marston, Thompson and Evershed plc, bought by Wolverhampton "> Tower Brewery, Burton, a microbrewery based in the old Salts Water Tower of Walsitch Maltings, which were formerly used by the second biggest brewer in Burton.

Burton Bridge Brewery is a local company based in Bridge Street with six local pubs in and around Burton. It produces a number of traditional beers including Bridge Bitter, Stairway to Heaven, Damson Porter and Golden Delicious. Tower Brewery is a microbrewery located off Wharf Road. Old Cottage Brewery is based in Hawkins Lane. Its beers include Oak Ale
and Halcyon Daze. Black Hole Brewery is based at the Imex Centre. Gates Brewery is also a microbrewery and is located in Reservoir Road.

Burton is also the corporate headquarters of the pub operators Punch Taverns plc and Spirit Pub Company , which were spun out of Bass in 1997. In addition, the White Shield micro-brewery remains open alongside the National Brewery Centre (formerly the Bass Museum of Brewing).

A by-product of the brewing industry, figuratively and literally, is the presence of the Marmite factory in the town. This in turn generated the production of Bovril . Both are now owned by multinational company Unilever

With brewing being so ingrained with the town, it is probably not surprising that Burton is also home to CAMRA 's National Breweriana Auction that takes place each October, latterly in the Town Hall.

In addition to the brewery industry, tyre manufacturer Pirelli
is a major employer in the town, and they are a major sponsor of the Burton Albion Football Club.

The Burton suburb of Branston is where Branston Pickle was invented.


Eatough's (sometimes Etough's) was a shoemaking firm from Leicestershire
that opened a factory in Burton Road, Branston in 1920. It was the first British shoe factory to introduce music in the workplace (1936), and washable children's sandals ('Plastisha' 1957), but it closed in 1989 as a result of competition from cheap imports.

Since the establishment of the Football League in 1888, Burton has been represented by four separate clubs in the League, two of which played in the league simultaneously in the 1890s. Burton Swifts became members of the Football League in 1892, and were joined by Burton Wanderers in 1894. Swifts played at Peel Croft , whilst Wanderers home ground was Derby
Turn . Wanderers left the League in 1897, and the two clubs merged to form Burton United in 1901, with the new club playing at Peel Croft. United were voted out of the Football League in 1907, and folded in 1910. Burton All Saints were then left as the town's main club, becoming Burton Town in 1924, but folded in 1940. In 1950 Burton Albion were founded. Having moved from Eton Park to the Pirelli Stadium in 2005, Albion became the town's fourth Football League club in 2009 after winning the Football Conference .
