DESCRIPTION

The south Derbyshire village or Egginton lies 4½ miles north-east of Burton-on-Trent and 7 miles south west of Derby. The village is almost surrounded by water as the Egginton and Hilton Brooks, the River Dove and the River Trent all flow close by. The River Dove which separates Egginton from Staffordshire is spanned by two bridges, the mainly preserved medieval Monk's Bridge and Brindley's twelve arched aqueduct completed around 1773 to carry the Trent and Mersey Canal across the river. These bridges are now separated from the village by the A38 dual carriageway.

Landowners of Egginton have included the families of Chandos & Pole, Leigh, Tymmore, Mosley and Every. Descendants of the latter are still connected with the village. The Georgian Hall, which replaced two previous manors, was itself demolished in 1955.

Since Simon Every of Somerset married the heiress Anne Leigh, the Everys owned most of the village of Egginton, but in 1940, owing to financial problems, the properties were sold and are now virtually all owner-occupied.

The Church of St. Wilfrid, the fabric of which dates mainly from the 13th century, contains a large number of memorials to the Mosley and Every families. There are several interesting features which are explained to visitors through the use of printed notices. The pulpit is of extreme interest as it was made from oak panelling which came from the Tudor Hall which was built in the 15th century and was probably not new then.
