The Location - The hamlet of Stanton by Bridge lies close to Swarkestone which is a small picturesque village just under six miles south of Derby and about three miles from the Georgian town of Melbourne. The ancient bridge and causeway date back to medieval times and span the River Trent; and with 29 arches and at just under a mile long, is believed to be the longest in England. The river is less than a mile away and is popular with local fishermen for barbel, roach, dace and the occasional pike. The Trent and Mersey canal is frequented by both boatmen and hikers alike. The local sailing club (with excellent facilities for disabled members) can be reached by car within a few minutes. The ever-popular Chellaston Academy for boys and girls is conveniently placed just over two miles away. There is easy access to the A50 and onwards to the M1 and M42 motorways.
