Barrow upon Soar


Don't forget, there are many places to visit and things to see here in Barrow. Here are just a few!

Barrow Boating.

One of Barrow's premier attractions.


The Round House.

An unusual and intriguing building. Can you guess what it was used for?

Pillings Lock.

On the canal north of Barrow toward Loughborough. A huge weir and flood relief mechanism. A good stretch of picturesque canal and riverside wildlife haven. Walk along the Towpath starting just over the Soar Bridge. See also A Guided Walk to Miller's Bridge.

Millennium Park.

The land was purchased by Barrow Parish Council to commemorate the 2000 Millennium. It has been developed as a wildlife area and recreation park by the Millennium Committee.
Situated just north of Fishpool Way, it contains a most unusual giant sundial. The pointer (gnomen) is 6.75 metres high and is one of only three giant sundials in the country.
There is also a circular dog walk and three huge thrushes eggs which children love to scramble over.
