The  best of the burton journal

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 -
