Welcome to the Great Barrow Website

The Parish of Barrow lies on a low sandstone ridge towards the western side of the Cheshire plain, some five miles to the east of Chester. It is a thriving area with a strong community spirit, winning awards for Community Spirit and Best Kept Village.

Barrow is a close knit community and anxious not to lose village traditions while keeping up with the times. We hope you enjoy your visit.

Recently some changes have been made to the website including:

  • Updating background functions
  • Fixing broken links within the site and to external websites.
  • Adding links to local organisations and businesses.
  • Adding a Calendar: we welcome entries from clubs, societies, meetings and  functions etc.
  • An expandable weather forecast.

We think a website should be interesting and useful. This site requires more work to meet this aim. Further improvements are in the pipeline.

We would love to receive your comments,  suggestions, news items, articles of interest, local photographs etc.
