Over 200 years of history

Did you know that Tyldesley Court takes its name from Sir Thomas Tyldesley an English Civil War general who led a charge across Burton Bridge in 1643? 

Trent & Dove has worked in partnership with Burton Civic Society, the Burton Mail and the Magic Attic to create a timeline of the site along with photographs detailing its history which you will see wrapped around the building site.

The timeline begins in the 1800s when Thomas Salt established his own brewery on the site before it was demolished more than 100 years later. A shopping centre and bowling alley were later built on the land in the 1960s but demolished in 2012. It then lay empty for more than 10 years until Trent & Dove started construction in 2023.

We are excited and proud to now breathe new life into Bargates and create a fresh start for generations to come.

Chief Executive of Trent & Dove, Ursula Bennion, said: “I am thrilled to see the blueprint of our £21.3 million Tyldesley Court housing development now becoming reality as construction is well underway.

“The addition of hoarding detailing Burton's rich history is not only a testament to our commitment to preserving our heritage but is also a celebration of our vibrant community.

“This initiative not only enhances the construction site but also provides a sense of pride and connection among residents.

“I would like to thank all our partners who have helped not only create this timeline but made this fantastic housing offer a reality.”

Chairman of Burton Civic Society, Mick Clifford, said: “Burton Civic Society is delighted to collaborate with Trent & Dove to create a detailed timeline of the fascinating history of Bargates.

“We want to preserve and celebrate the heritage of our community, and this timeline gives people a chance to learn more about the land and how it played a part in our brewing and retail history.”
