SK5233 : Flood Defence, River Trent

taken 12 years ago, near to Barton in Fabis, Nottinghamshire, Great Britain

Flood Defence, River Trent
Flood Defence, River Trent
An embankment protecting the village of Barton in Fabis from flooding by the River Trent. In spite of being built in the Trent meadows, a natural flood plain, Barton in Fabis is an ancient village. Roman coins and tessella have been found at nearby Glebe Farm. It is most likely that Charles Stuart used Barton ferry to cross the river on his way to Stamford to give himself up to the Scots in 1646 thereby avoiding Nottingham. It was to be his last journey as a free man.
