Hemington is a village in Leicestershire, England.
In 1790, the nearby Harrington Bridge was built to create a crossing of the River Trent. The new bridge was a toll bridge and everyone except locals living in Hemington or Sawley (in Derbyshire) were required to pay the toll.
Hemington was historically a chapelry in the parish of Lockington. It became a separate civil parish in 1866, but in 1936 the parish was abolished and reunited with Lockington to form the civil parish of Lockington Hemington or Lockington cum Hemington.
Gravel quarrying at Hemington during the 1990s led to the discovery of three sets of remains from successive medieval bridges across the Trent.
The parish was in Castle Donington Rural District from 1894 until 1974 and since 1974 in the North West Leicestershire District
