Mount Bures


Bringing you all the news from the parish



 

Where are we ?

The parish of Mount Bures takes its name from the "Mount" or "Mound" which stands at the centre of the village and "bur" which means building or dwelling.
The village resides in Essex, the River Stour to the North and Wakes Colne to the south.

Mount Bures was previously called "Bures St John, Little Bures or Bures Sackville" to distinguish it from Bures Hamlet and Bures St Mary.
Today Mount Bures is its adopted name.
The railway opened in 1848 and runs through the centre of the village
The nearest rail station is located at Bures Hamlet
