The Sunnywood Project Burrs Country Park History Trail:

Our exciting, interactive History Trail, within the Burrs Country Park, will lead you on a journey to discover the heritage of the site and its ecological importance.

Learn about the ELR and the mill sites, nature and even the Irwell Sculpture Trail!

There are 10 locations throughout the 2.5km route.

Use your phone to scan the QR code at each location and Professor Jigget will present to you the history of that very location!

Watch this video for more instructions!



This History Trail has been made possible by the Bury Town of Culture Fund.
