DESCRIPTION

The village of Barrow-on-Trent stands as its name signifies, on the bank of the River Trent, which at this point is subject to flooding. Also close by is the Trent & Mersey Canal. Six miles south of Derby and within easy reach of Burton-on-Trent, Barrow is a much desirable residential village and even in the early days, before the advent of the motor-car, was a favourable place of residence for those of comfortable means. This is evident from the number of substantial houses of the 18th and 19th centuries which still stand today. The area is good agricultural and pasture land.

One large house which had not survived was Barrow Hall, dating from around 1717 and rebuilt in 1809. Here lived the family of the name Beaumont who acquired the estate from the Bothes of Arleston. The estate had previously belonged to the Knights Hospitallers as a guest house for travellers and was attached to the estate at Stydd near Yeavely. The Knights Hospitallers also owned the Norman church which once stood here.

Barrow Manor, built in the 17th century still stands and was owned by the Sale family through several generations until it was sold in 1914.

The present church of St. Wilfrid, built in the Early English style, replaced the Norman edifice. It has 13th century pillars in the north arcade, but most is of 14th century date. There are several early memorials to the Beaumont and Sale families. The registers date from 1657 and are deposited at the County Record Office at Matlock.
