Burton is known for its brewing.[3] The town grew up around Burton Abbey. Burton Bridge was also the site of two battles, in 1322 when Edward II defeated the rebel Earl of Lancaster and 1643 when royalists captured the town during the First English Civil War. William Lord Paget and his descendants were responsible for extending the manor house within the abbey grounds and facilitating the extension of the River Trent Navigation to Burton. Burton grew into a busy market town by the early modern period.

The town is served by Burton-on-Trent railway station. The town was also the start and terminus of the now defunct South Staffordshire Line which linked it to Lichfield, Walsall, Dudley and Stourbridge.  Burton Home Removals.

River
Burton now lies on both sides of the River Trent. Historically there was just one bridge over the river, Burton Old bridge (which carries the A511) and there was a small ferry that operated from “time immemorial”. This was eventually replaced by the Ferry Bridge. A second road crossing of the Trent is St Peter’s Bridge (which carries the A5189) was opened in 1985.[44]  Burton Home Removals.

Road
The A38, which passes slightly north of the town connects Burton to Birmingham via Lichfield (South-West) and Derby (North-East). The A444 links traffic to Coventry and the M42 motorway and the A511 links traffic to Leicester. The A5121 carries traffic through the middle of Burton connecting to the A38, A5189 and A511 respectively. The A5189 runs (West-East) across Burton and connects the A444 through Burton and across the River Trent.

Rail
The town is served by Burton-on-Trent railway station, which is accessed from the bridge on Borough Road. The station has two platforms, (Platform One for Derby, Nottingham and the North), (Platform Two for Tamworth, Birmingham and the South). The station is situated on the Cross Country Route between the principal cities of Derby and Birmingham.  Burton Home Removals.
