Welcome to "Glennkill & Hammersmith". Two suburbs outside the city limits of "Burton". Whereas "Glennkill" used to be a small village, "Hammersmith" was created during the 70's. "Glennkill" is just a small medium sized village with around 14.000 inhabitants and "Hammersmith" counts around 6.000. The village is also home to the "Royal Saltworth Park Golf Club".

"Glennkill" was founded in 1850 as a religious community outside the "City of Burton". With the industrial revolution the industry began to expand outside the boundaries of "Burton" and into the village of "Glennkill". After that the village began to grow until it reached todays size. To provided room for the evergrowing population of "Burton", the city council soon began to errect highrises and council estates near "Glennkill". The position along the M24 and the "North East-West Mainline" did help the town to develope fast. During the 1970's, along with "Hammersmith", the "City Council of Burton" also decided to extend the "Burton Underground" until "Glennkill". All these factors helped  to make "Glennkill & Hammersmith" the community & town it is now.

A broad overview of the main city core. "Glennkill" can be seen to the right and stretches past the motoway. Pretty much all the buildings left of the church resemble "Hammersmith".

The town centre of "Glennkill" at night. Not much has changed in the core of the village since the 19th century. Most buildings along the main road are still in the original state.

The industrial area around the old classification yard. There used to be massive cotton mill here, long time ago, but now the hightech industry took over.

The westside of "Glennkill". You can also see parts of the gold club here. This area is a little bit more wealthy than the rest of the town.
