Barrow-upon-Soar (A Guided Walk in Barrow-upon-Soar)

"Barrow-upon-Soar" is an interesting Guided Walk devised and led by the well-known Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby, of Colin Crosby Heritage Tours.

These walks are an enjoyable way of learning some Local History.

The walk starts outside Holy Trinity Church in the centre of Barrow-upon-Soar, and takes the form of a stroll around this fascinating village on the River Soar and on the edge of the Wolds.

Along the way, Colin points out interesting features, such as Bishop Beveridge House, Barrow Deep Lock and the Old Mens Hospital, as well as the extensive jitties which are probably the remnants of a mediaeval street system.
