A tiny portion of the parish borders on the River Trent. The parish covers about 3,500 acres and includes the hamlets of Darby, Normanby and Thealby within its borders, including a portion of Coleby hamlet.

The village of Burton on Stather is situated on the brow of a cliff on the east bank of the River Trent. The village is famed for its magnificent views.
