Scotland's Rural college at Scone

Milner Landscapes and Construction Ltd are currently carrying out the landscaping scheme on a new development in Burton on Trent. The development consists of over 800 houses, new public open space areas and other leisure facilities. Harrowden Turf have been vital in carrying out all areas of the project.

At the forefront of this was The Crescent. Over a period of 6 weeks, over 150 trees and circa 5,000m2 Harrowden turf were installed to form the new entrance for the Sales Complex.

Dracan Village features a stunning collection of brand new 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes, with three show homes.



Dracan Village has the River Trent to the north, and open fields to the south. Located on the edge of Burton-upon-Trent the development benefits from all the amenities of this medium-sized historic market town. There are miles of footpaths to enjoy walking or cycling. The river is within walking distance, as well as great schools and transport links within very easy reach.

The Local Area
