The bridge over the Trent and the flood plain to its south dates from the 17th century. For hundreds of years it formed the main river crossing in the area, and the way to London from Derby, until the Cavendish bridge at Shardlow was built. This, the longest stone bridge in England, is very busy and shamefully battered and repaired. It was disputably the site of Bonnie Prince Charlie's furthest foot south. The surrounding marshes often flood and ghostes are reportedly seen in the area.
OK. Ghostes are a bit like ghosts but with a Scottish spirit.
