Named after? Imaginatively after a close-by bridge over the river Trent.
Home ground advantage? Nope. Australia have won seven to England’s four in 20 Ashes Tests – the draw is the winner though, with nine of those matches not reaching a result.
Highest total? England declared on 8 for 658 in 1938, with Eddie Paynter on 216 not out. He was one of four centurions.
Highest individual score? In the same game, Australia’s Stan McCabe scored 232. He was last out with his team on 411 and Australia had to follow on.
Lowest total? England were rolled for 112 in 1921. Australia smashed them by an innings in two days.
Most Ashes centuries at Trent Bridge? Don Bradman scored three here.
Most Ashes wickets at Trent Bridge? Shane Warne took an incredible 29 scalps in four Tests between 1993 and 2005.
Great Ashes moment here? A grinding day for England fans when, in 1989, Aussie openers Mark Taylor and Geoff Marsh batted through the entirety of day one for 301 runs.
That’s weird: An office block forms part of the ground after a corner of it sold to raise funds.
Old stuff: First Ashes Test at Trent Bridge was in June 1899 and ended in a draw. Cricket was being played behind the nearby Trent Bridge Inn in from 1838.
