Dunham-on-Trent is a village and civil parish in Nottinghamshire, England. It is located on the A57 road, about 0.5 miles (0.80 km) west of Dunham Bridge, a toll bridge crossing the River Trent. According to the 2001 census it has a population of 351,[1] falling slightly to 343 at the 2011 Census.[2] The earliest part of the Grade 1 listed parish church of St Oswald is the tower, dating from the 15th century and Perpendicular in style.[3] The rest is mostly Victorian, built 1861–62 by T.C. Hine, father of George Thomas Hine, though the south nave wall remains from an earlier reconstruction completed in 1802.[4]
