Aston-on-Trent is a Derbyshire village, situated in the English East Midlands, near Derby. It is adjacent to Weston-on-Trent and is near to Chellaston. It is very close to the border with Leicestershire.
There is a primary school, run by headmistress Ann Tunley, and there is a church (All Saints), which dates back to Celtic times. It takes pride in its fascinating history.
Local amenities include a post office, a corner shop and two public houses, the White Hart and the Malt Shovel.
One of the earliest mentions of this place is in the Domesday book where it is mentioned as an outlying farm of Weston-on-Trent and listed amongst the lands given to Henry de Ferrers by the King. The land given to Henry included five acres of land that was valued at eight shillings.
The name is of Anglo-Saxon descent ('ton' an Anglo-Saxon suffix meaning town). Being in the east, the name literally means 'East Town'. The 'On-Trent' suffix of both Aston and nearby villages simply means they are near the river Trent.
Amongst other organisations, Aston-on-Trent F.C. consists of a First Team and a Reserve Team. Playing in the Long Eaton Sunday League, the two teams are currently in the HSBC Premier Division and Division Three respectively.
