This site records the work of the Heritage Group which is composed of residents who are interested in some particular aspect of Barrow's heritage.
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:
