Burton Joyce is a large English village and civil parish in the Gedling district of Nottinghamshire, about 7 miles (11 km) east of Nottingham, bounded by the smaller Stoke Bardolph to the south and Bulcote to the north-east. The A612 links it to Carlton, Gedling village and Netherfield to the south-west, and Lowdham to the north-east. Initially the site of an Iron age fort, it was occupied by Norman nobility, who founded St Helen's Church. From being a small farming community, Burton Joyce grew in the early Industrial Revolution, earning a reputation up to the 1920s for quality textile products. Many of the 3,443 population commute to Nottingham. It forms with Stoke Bardoph and Bulcote the Trent Valley ward of Gedling, which elects two councillors.
