Burton upon Stather

Burton Stather Heritage Group

Burton Stather Heritage Group was formed in May 2009 by a group of like minded individuals with an active interest in the heritage of our Parish. Our first project (and the reason the Heritage group exists) is the Tank Ramp, a military slipway built on the side of the River Trent during WWII for top secret testing of amphibious Tanks & ancilliaries. These were famously known as Hobarts Funnies because of their unusual designs and the leader of the 79th Armoured division stationed here, Major General Percy Cleghorn Stanley Hobart.
