The Burton Estate Club was founded in 1951 when Lord Monson granted the village a
lease on the Old School Building . Until that time, the villages within the Monson
Estate had remained dry. The Club rules, agreed by Lord Monson, state its object
“To afford its members the means of social intercourse, mutual helpfulness mental
and moral improvement and rational recreation”
Membership of the club is by payment of an annual subscription of only £10. It is
open every evening from Thursday to Saturday 7pm -11pm and at lunchtime on Sundays
from 1230pm to 5.00pm. The club has a lively programme of events, particularly during
the summer months, when you can relax with a drink in the pleasant grounds. The
building, which is Grade 2 listed, no longer meets the needs of the parish whose
population has grown from 150 to over 500 people. The Club committee is therefore
seeking a £75,000 grant to improve the facilities.
