Burton Upon Trent, Trent Bridge c.1960

Caption for Burton On Trent, C1960

Burton Bridge was once one of only a handful of crossing points over the Trent River, and consequently the town was of some strategic importance.

Memories of Burton upon Trent

Abbey Drapery

I remember my mom working at Abbey Drapery. I used to love to go in and watch the vacuum payment system. The money was put in a round tube and whoosh off it would go only to return minutes later with the change.

Magical Place

My childhood was lived in Burton and Stapenhill - 1952 to 1965 I remember fondly the swan and gardens, running up and down the beautiful rock garden steps.

The Barrel Organ In High Street Burton

I remember the Pub in High Street just before Bargates on the River side. There was a Barrel Organ in the Alley which had a monkey chained to the organ but I can't remember the name of the Pub. Perhaps someone can remember better than me as I was only 8 years old at the time.

Bank Holidays

I remember walking from the bridge onto the ox hay as a teenager, there was a fete and barbeque during the day and a dance at night under a big marquee, complete with a wooden floor. A liitle further along the bridge were the public baths and swimming baths, we used to go along there for a bath before we had a bathroom of our own.
