Barrow upon Trent is a quiet, unspoilt South Derbyshire village, sited between the River Trent to the south and the Trent and Mersey Canal to the north, approximately five miles from the city of Derby.
Mentioned in the Doomsday Book the village has a strong history and most of the village now lies within a conservation area, with St Wilfred’s Church, a 12th Century Grade I listed building, at its centre. Just a mile away is the ancient Swarkestone Causeway Bridge, the southernmost point reached by Bonnie Prince Charlie, when advancing on London in 1745.
This sense of history is reflected in the number of National Trust properties in the area: Calke Abbey
being a popular choice for family days out, along with Sudbury Hall, Kedleston Hall and Chatsworth House.
The river and canals have also had an influence on leisure activities available, with the development
of Mercia Marina, in nearby Willington, now the largest inland marina in Europe, and Swarkestone
Sailing Club, a local family friendly club, welcoming experienced sailors and novices alike.
To enjoy the river at a slower pace, a bridlepath on Chapel Lane leads to the picturesque banks of the River Trent, and connects to a number of local footpaths.
Barrow upon Trent and the surrounding villages have a wide range of thriving Inns and Restaurants, serving an excellent range of food, including fine dining options for that special occasion.
Offering excellent transport links to main routes, A50, A38, M1 and M42 and national rail networks at
Derby and East Midlands Parkway (both with a twice hourly service to London); the village is close to East Midlands International Airport, yet only ten minutes from Derby city centre and an easy commute to Nottingham, Leicester and Birmingham. And for those working from home the village also has the
benefit of super-fast broadband.
The village school is Sale & Davys C of E Controlled Primary School, where Key Stage 2 SATS
results recently placed the school within the top 1% of primary schools nationally for pupil attainment.
Secondary education is provided at Chellaston Academy just a few miles away. For those seeking
private education Foremarke Hall Preparatory School, Repton School, Trent College, Derby High School for Girls and Derby Independent Grammar School for Boys are all nearby.
