Carlton-on-Trent is a small village in England, located between the River Trent and the A1 road near Newark-on-Trent in Nottinghamshire.

The village forms part of the Newark and Sherwood district, it is also served by a Parish Council.

The village has several entries in the Domesday Book, mainly for the year 1086 relating to the Records of the Exchequer, and its related bodies, with those of the Office of First Fruits and Tenths, and the Court of Augmentations. Associated names for these entries include The Earl Tosti and the Man of Rodger De Bully.

Carlton Mill was a six-storey brick tower windmill built before 1821. The tower is still standing, as a shell without floors, to a height of 60 feet.[2]
