Detailed Description If you live in Burton do you know that you are floating on artesian wells? Listen in as John Hayward explains about the waters of Burton in this enlightening and entertaining testimony, sharing his memories about and hopes for Burton-on-Trent - England's premier brewing town. Smell the mash 'going in' as you walk around Burton in your imagination, 'see' through John's eyes the smoke billowing out of the chimneys and steam coming from the brewery coppers, dodge the steam engines in the High Street resplendent in their brewery livery colours. Find out about Groby's Knob and meet the mighty one-armed gate keeper. You won't fail to find an enthusiasm for Burton or its future in John's life, as he says himself "I've been in Burton all my life....and I've no intention of leaving cos I enjoy it.... I get very disappointed, annoyed, if people knock Burton...it's a great town". The transcript of the full interview is available to read with this contribution, whilst the audio file is a small clip taken from the original recording.
