A first visit to The Pirelli stadium, home of Burton Albion F.C. A division 2 game with Rochdale for us and spoilt as a spectacle by an early sending off for a Rochdale player. 1-0 home win but without the dismissal who knows, 'dale looked by far the better team, the final league table will tell!
Anyway it's a decent stadium, comfortable with a decent view and worth a visit to see reasonably priced lower division footie!
Good views of the river can be enjoyed from the three bridges, the main Burton Bridge, the old wood and iron ferry bridge and the footbridge which connects the town centre to Andresey Island, one of the town's parks.
Burton Union System
Just a few years ago many breweries were still using the traditional "union" method of fermentation that has become forever linked with Burton. Burton Union System is on displayed now outside Bass Museum. It's hard to understand how they managed such a wonderful system.
There is a new brewing copper from Bass, new brewery is placed outside Bass museum. It was built in 1863 and later on in 1984, it was demolished. I have never seen a brewing copper in my life so I found it very interesting.
The Museum merchandise collection contains selective branded merchandise for the major Coors Brewers Brands including Carling, Caffrey's and Worthington. You could also find different kind of souvenirs.
The Market Hall
The Market Hall was built in 1883 and has a carving within the pediment over the west entrance depicting King John granting the charter for a weekly market and a three-day fair in 1200. Now a day it is the place to buy your fruits, vegetables and other household stuff.
St. Modwen’s Church
St. Modwen’s Church is classically inspired and was erected between 1719-1726 by William and Richard Smith of Tettenhall. It is well worth a visit particularly for its interior. Part of the vestry was destroyed in a fire at the turn of the 20th century, and admirably restored with local private, public and charitable monies.
Garden of Remembrance is named after those people who lost their lives during the Second World War between 1939-1945. Located near Library and river. It has cemetery as well and there are name of people who died during that era.
