Hopes of a re­visit gone for a Bur­ton

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Telegraph -

I WAS watch­ing Michael Por­tillo’s trip to Bur­ton on Trent the other evening and rem­i­nisced.

I had vis­ited the town not many years ago. Be­ing renowned for its brew­ing I thought I would do a pub crawl, and as I alighted from the train I thought why not start with the sta­tion ho­tel. But the sta­tion ho­tel was closed, and by all ap­pear­ances had been for some years.

How­ever, I spot­ted a pub down the road and walked in that di­rec­tion. That too was closed, but would open later if I cared to wait un­til the evening! How­ever. I did even­tu­ally get my drink.

Would I go back to Bur­ton on Trent? Well. Not un­less I wanted a cup of tea!
