Gunthorpe is a small village outside of Nottingham, England. Gunthorpe Bridge is the only bridge over the River Trent between Newark and Nottingham. Gunthorpe is in the Newark and Sherwood district. Gunthorpe also has 5 pubs/restaurants. Pontifinos (formerly The Anchor), Tom Browns, The Unicorn, The Bridge and Bayleaf (formerly The Toll House) and Biondi. There is a large motorhome and caravan centre called Lowdhams Leisureworld, built on the former Tarmac landfill site in 1991, a slightly smaller centre called David Fuller Leisure Vehicles, and a small caravan and motorhome service and repair centre called Lodge farm Leisure.In 2000, Gunthorpe was flooded by the river Trent. Following the floods of 2000 there followed a significant amount of publicity regarding the exposure of the village to further flooding and the need for improved defences. Given that only a small proportion of properties were actually damaged in 2000, there are concerns that this negative publicity has adversely affected the image (and house prices) of the village."The Danes sailed up the Trent and settled at Gunthorpe." "Old Gunthorpe toll bridge was built on the site of a ford and ferry that had existed since Roman times. The Gunthorpe Bridge Co. raised £7,500 in £10 shares, laid the foundation stone in 1873 and completed the largely iron structure in 1875. The tolls were horse and carriage 1/-, horse and wagon 6d, horse alone 3d, people and passengers 1d, motorcycles 3d, cars 1/- and lorries 2/6, when the 1925 the Gunthorpe Bridge Act empowered the council to buy the owners out, demolish the bridge and replace it with the present one. According to the sign this was the first toll bridge in the country to be replaced by a free one. Hard to believe, but perhaps previous councils had just built new free bridges and let the private ones decay. The Gunthorpe formation mudstones are mined for both clay and gypsum at various quarries around Nottinghamshire. The English Queen Boudicca allegedly defeated the Roman IX Legion near here in the 1st century AD."
