The parish is within 0.5mi of the Staffordshire county boundary and the village is about 5mi northeast of Burton upon Trent.The village is at the crossroads of the north – south B5008 road (for Findern, Repton and Winshill), and the east – west A5132 road (formerly the B5009, linking Hilton and Swarkestone). The A5132 carried a lot of Nottingham – Stoke-on-Trent traffic before the A50 road was opened in September 1997.HistoryToponymyThe toponym Willington is derived from the Old English tun (homestead or farm) among the willows. In the Domesday Book, the village is called Willetune or Willentune, and the land was held by Ralph FitzHubert and was an agricultural village on the flood plain of the Trent.
