Burton upon Trent,
Staffordshire, DE15 9AE

The area of East Staffordshire Borough Council is located in the 'Heart of England', between the cities of Derby and Stoke-on-Trent, north of Birmingham and Wolverhampton and with the northern most tip of the Council area just fringing the beautiful Peak District National Park.

The key towns in the Council area are Uttoxeter in the north and Burton upon Trent in the south and other smaller towns and villages include Abbots Bromley, Barton-under-Needwood, Denstone, Ellastone, Hanbury, Kingstone, Marchington, Mayfield, Rolleston on Dove and Tutbury. The region is a mix of beautiful countryside, agriculture and industrial heritage with brewing as the most notable industry associated with the area.

Burton upon Trent is synonymous with brewing and beer and is probably the most famous brewing town in the UK. During the latter part of the 19th century, the numerous brewers in the area were responsible for over a quarter of all UK beer production and some of most famous beer names and brands originated in the area; these include Bass, Eversheds and Worthington. With a museum, vintage delivery vehicles and shire horses, The National Brewing Centre in Burton pays homage to the history of the brewing industry as well as offering a beer boutique!

Many of the famous brewers (and their families) who went on to develop the eponymous world-famous beer brands are buried in the Stapenhill (formerly 'Burton') Cemetery. A number of the most renowned brewers also became MPs and some were elevated to the House of Lords; indeed at one time there were so many brewing barons that they were known as the 'brewing beerage'!

Uttoxeter boasts one of the finest horse racing circuits in The Midlands and has hosted the annual Midlands Grand National since 1969.

Stapenhill Cemetery is Grade II listed by Historic England and is a fine cemetery with many monuments and memorials of local dignitaries and prominent citizens. It boasts a particularly fine and ornate gateway
