Situated on the north bank of the River Trent, Aston on Trent provides a wealth of unspoilt countryside, with the Mersey and Trent canals running through the village. At the centre of the village is St Wilfrid's Church, a Grade I listed building that dates back to the 12th Century, and showcasing immaculate 13th Century architecture. The war memorial which was presented by the Arkwright family, stands in the village due to the most men being sent to the front line in relation to the village size in the First World War, highlighting the bravery of the village history.
