The town itself dates back to the seventh century and is situated on the along the River Trent. The original name for the town was an Anglo Saxon term Aitone that means town by the water. In the nineteenth century, the town began to prosper due to industries such as quarrying and lace making that was boosted by canal and railway transportation systems. By the year 1870 Long Eaton had grew from a little agricultural into a quite large popular town. By the 1900s the population had grew to a massive twenty thousand.

Due to the close proximity to Nottingham, you may be able to visit the neighbouring Nottingham Castle Museum. Definitely, a place for the historians, as it was one of the most important Castles of England in the sixteenth century. The King of that time was executed, and in 1651 Parliament ordered that the castle was to be demolished. The castle was eventually swept away leaving artefacts and remnants were buried so that later the Duke of Newcastle came and built his palace on the Castle Rock. This building was burned in 1831 by Reform Rioters, and was left a shell until 1878 where it was restored and built into a fine museum and art gallery. Many displays of the fine art of that time that have been grouped in to collections, such as the work of the Studio Potters of the 1950s, which is named the Ballantyne Collection.
