Fleet Cottage is a rare example of an early north-east Nottinghamshire cottage of the 17th century, with a timber-framed upper storey on a limestone ground floor.[3] Girton has many floodplains from the River Trent that support many species of plants and wildlife such as Meadow Foxtail and Meadowsweet.[4]
