A TOTAL of 16 information boards have been replaced to further cement Burton’s partnership with The National Forest.

Ten information boards have been installed across the Washlands, while another six can be seen in Union Street, George Street, Station Street, Duke Street, King Edward Place and Manor Croft.

The boards are being used to advise visitors of the history of the area and provide information on key historical features and events within the town.

Councillor Patricia Ackroyd, deputy leader for built environment at East Staffordshire Borough Council, said: “This is part of the Conservative Group’s commitment to promote and enhance the local environment for the people of the borough and for those who visit us.”

In the design statement produced by the borough council in its application, it said: “Burton and the Washlands have a rich history and heritage, particularly in relation to the brewing industry.

“The interpretation panels document this heritage and history while guiding visitors around various trails.

“Working with the National Forest and using their branded signage will help us to establish the Washlands as a destination within the National Forest.”

Around the Washlands there are 10 signs, with four boards located either side of Andressey Bridge, two off Stapenhill Road, and one in the car park near St Peter’s Church.

There is also one close to Bargates and outside Burton Library, both off High Street.
