A large town by the side of the River Trent, between the cities of Derby and Nottingham, with a history dates back to before the 7th century. The town began to prosper from the 19th century onwards with the onset of the Industrial Revolution.

Up until the late 19th century, Long Eaton was just a small agricultural village. Its new prosperity and industries included lace making and quarrying, plus the fact that it was situated close to both a canal and large rail network. Population of the town rose swiftly around this time thanks largely to the factories and manufacturers that began to arrive in numbers. Today, the town has all the modern amenities and facilities you would expect, and it also has its own Public School. Close by is Trent Lock, a busy boating and sailing centre just a short distance from the centre of town.
