Aston-on-Trent is a Derbyshire village, situated in the English East Midlands, near Derby. It is adjacent to Weston-on-Trent and is near to Chellaston. It is very close to the border with Leicestershire.

It is situated on the north bank of the River Trent, about a mile from the river on rising ground safely out of the flood plain. The Trent and Mersey Canal runs between the village and the river.

There is a primary school, run by headmistress Lindsey Kalirai, and there is a church (All Saints), which dates back to Celtic times.

Local amenities include a Post Office, a corner shop and two public houses, the White Hart and the Malt Shovel.
