Located by St. Peter’s Bridge in Burton upon Trent, the Burton Mail Centenary Woodland was opened to the public for the paper’s centenary, Saturday May 2nd, 1998.

The woodland was created in partnership with East Staffordshire Borough Council and with the support of Carlsberg Tetley (the then owners of the land) and the National Forest Company. The initial work saw 4,500 native trees and shrubs, including Willow, Poplar, Alder, Oak and Ash, to create a floodplain woodland. Floodplain woodland is a rare habitat today as the productive land found in floodplains has typically been cleared of tree cover to allow agricultural use.

Part of the Woodlands and Washlands Circuit, the Centenary Woodlands have been created with surfaced and mown pathways throughout the area of the woodland.
