Welcome to Barrow-upon-Humber – a thriving village with a fascinating history.

This is a new and updated version of the previous site, providing information of interest about the village to everyone. We have included a number of links – please let us know, via the Contact page, if you have a relevant site you would like added.

The News section is designed to keep residents aware of important happenings within the village – do please submit topics for inclusion. If you have an event which you wish to be added to the Calendar, please submit add it via the Add An Event page.

The main part of the site will be found under ‘About the Village’ which contains information about Barrow’s heritage, John Harrison and Barrow’s Buildings. This last item contains a detailed description of much of the architecture of the village, including a suggested walk.

The Gallery contains a few pictures and needs adding to – again ideas would be most welcome.
