Barrow Parish is a rural community set within a well-maintained environment of green fields, woodlands and footpaths, sandstone features and flourishing bio-diversity. The community thrives on this and the social interaction of its various and many organisations
Barrow is a rural parish lying within the former Chester City District, now Cheshire West and Chester . The Parish measures around 2.9 miles, both north/south and east/west. Most of its settlements lie on the sandstone ridge rising above the sparsely populated flood meadows of the River Gowy, separating Barrow from Chester City and its adjoining suburbs. The Parish is bounded by the busy A51 and A56 and is, therefore, very accessible whilst still retaining its rural peace and character in an attractive, pastoral environment.
The countryside landscape of the Parish comprises the Gowy Valley and Barrow Hill and plains to the north and south. The built-up areas are surrounded by open countryside of fields, hedges and streams.
Barrow is an historic, agricultural community situated in the Greenbelt. There are 449 dwellings in the Parish of Barrow. Of these 208 are located in central village, with the rest spread throughout the parish with smaller settlements in Little Barrow, Long Green, Broomhill, Hollowmoor Heath, and Stamford Bridge.

This project will mean that the Pavilion will become a ‘Community Hub’ facility for everyone to use. Thanks must go to the Cheshire Leader Fund & the Rural Development Programme, Sports England, Cheshire West and Chester Council, The George Heath Foundation, Garfield Weston Foundation, National Lottery Community Fund and The Rylance & Smith Charitable Trust without all of your support this project could not have happened.
