The Location - The quiet, picturesque village of Stanton by Bridge stands on rising ground overlooking the flood plain of the River Trent where it is crossed by the historic Stanton causeway and Swarkestone Bridge. The local church of St Michael has parts which date back to Norman times. There are many pleasant places to stroll in and around the village including the nearby reservoir at Foremark and several fine country pursuits such as fishing, sailing, horseriding and golf. The Georgian market town of Melbourne is a short distance away and has a good range of shops, pubs and restaurants and many interesting places to visit including Calke Abbey (a National Trust Property) and the reservoir at Staunton Harold. There are several good schools in the area including Repton Independent School and the renowned Chellaston School. Stanton by Bridge is well located for access to the A50, and the M1 and M42 motorways, and is therefore within easy commuting distance of all major Midlands towns and cities and the Nottingham East Midlands airport near Castle Donington.
