Colin Crosby Heritage Tours


Tutbury is an attractive little market town in Staffordshire, 4 miles from Burton-upon-Trent and on the River Dove, which separates it from Derbyshire.

St. Mary`s Church is the former Benedictine priory church, dating from the 11th century, with a Norman nave and stunning Norman West door.

Tutbury Castle, now in ruins, has a fine position overlooking the area, on a site used since the Iron Age. Dates mostly from 14th century, when it was one of the homes of John of Gaunt. Mary Queen of Scots was twice imprisoned here.

The timber framed Dog and Partridge stands among elegant Georgian buildings in the harmonious High Street.

Another tourist attraction is the Georgian Crystal Company.

There is a fortified ditch from the original Anglo-Saxon settlement, known as the Park Pale.

Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby is available to lead Guided Walks around Tutbury for groups.
