Superfast fibre broadband finally hits Burton!

Great excitement this week as we heard that Burton village can now get superfast fibre broadband. Holme, on the same exchange, has been able to get it for a few weeks now.

We've been checking and it seems that most of Burton village itself has the status message "accepting orders", and fibre certainly gets as far as the kennels on Station Lane.

Holme Mills is "fibre to cabinet but cabinet not yet taking orders so keep checking", Hilderstone is "accepting orders", but Burtlands/Station Inn and out to Moss House Farm are all returning "exploring solutions".

The houses at the very top of Vicarage Lane, Dalton, are also "exploring solutions". 

Dalton Hall Business Centre and Stable Yard areas are "accepting orders", as is Clawthorpe.

If you are not sure if your line is fibre-possible, do use the checker to see (BT lines only) or contact your telephone provider and ask them directly.

King's Barn opens officially!

There was great excitement tonight in the King's Arms, with the official opening of the King's Barn accommodation. Extra en-suite bedrooms have been created within the revamped former storage barn, with one having full disabled access and a wet-room, along with an en-suite linked room adjoining suitable for a carer or family.

The rooms can serve as twin beds or wide doubles, with ample hanging space for clothes,a hospitality tray, and en suite facilities including showers and baths.

Cosily warm and tastefully decorated, the rooms are just across the courtyard from the main building and have easy access from the adjacent car park.
