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

This is a new and updated version of the previous site which we intend to keep current, providing information of interest about the village to everyone.  We realise that there are many additions and improvements to be made and welcome all your suggestions and comments.  Please bear with us as we get to grips with running a website of relevance for all residents and other visitors.

We have included a number of links – please let me know if you have a relevant site you would like added.

Importantly, we have included a calendar (under the Events section) where Barrow organisations can publicise their events.  We had intended to launch it with an Add Event facility; however, there is a problem with this particular application and so – for the time being – please submit any events you wish to be included via the comments section on the contacts page.

The News section is designed to keep residents aware of important happenings within the village – again please submit topics for inclusion.

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, 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.
