Dunham On Trent, Darlton, Ragnall and Fledborough Parish Council is a collection of Villages also known as Dunham and District Parish Council. The villages have a village hall the Millenium Centre built in 1999. The A57, the main East Coast runs through the Villages leading to the famous toll bridge which can sometimes become impassable due to the River Trent which also runs through the area.  There is still a working red telephone box with an actual phone in Dunham.  This is a rural farming community, with four beautiful churches, a primary school, two public houses along with the village hall which has a fantastic play area behind it.  Darlton Village also has a play ground enabled through lottery funding.
