The Burton Journal was published from 2004 - 2008 with the support of the Parish
Council to keep the residents of Burton Village and the emerging community of Burton
Waters better informed of local issues and parish events. Edited by John Copeland
and Gordon Hickmore, it was a high class publication published quarterly and distributed
free to all households in the parish.
It contained topical interviews with Burton residents, travel, humorous contributions
from parishioners and articles covering the history of our parish. With advancing
years, the editors have now retired and in the absence of anyone willing to take
on the responsibility, the Journal has ceased publication.... but perhaps in time
we may be persuaded to publish an annual magazine.
Many of the articles in the magazine remain of interest to parishioners and to others
who are interested in local history or researching their family trees. Copies of
some of the articles contained in the Journal have been saved for posterity and
we have published these on the website. Please click on the links below -
