"WALTON-UPON-TRENT is a parish (having no dependent township), in the hundred of Repton and Gresley, about 4 miles S.W. from Burton. It was here that Edward II. forded the Trent in pursuit of Thomas, Earl of Lancaster, and the disaffected barons. A new bridge is in progress of erection here, which, in connexion with the new road before-mentioned in the account of Swadlincote, will reciprocally benefit the parts adjacent to it."
[Description from Pigot and Co's Commercial Directory for Derbyshire, 1835]
Mat FASCIONE has a photograph of the Village Sign as you enter the village on Geo-graph, taken in June, 2015. Again, another prospect for showing off your artistry and design skills by creating a new, welcoming sign.
