Discovering the history of Barrow Upon Soar......

Welcome to Barrow upon Soar Heritage Group website

This site records the work of the Heritage Group, a sub-set of the Barrow upon Soar Community Association (BuSCA). The site is a series of Projects and Articles about the village and the surrounding area. See site map for full listing.

Currently there are three strands of activity:

Natural History which includes surveys of wild life, vegetation and habitats as well as country walks;

People and Places which at the moment is looking at the history of streets, their buildings and the people who lived in them;

Archaeology which collects evidence from the past by field walking to collect relics and then researches the history of these relics.

This website is a series of articles about Barrow and the surrounding area. These are described in terms of a small set of key words (descriptors). You may find it useful to search for articles using several of these routes:

This website also provides links to other sites dealing with the heritage of the village history and a family history section where there are extensive records of births, marriages and deaths and census data. Please 'Note' we do not provide research for individual family's.


This site is dedicated to the late Arthur Gardner whose idea, vision and inspiration it was.
