Description and Travel

Barrow on Humber sits, naturally enough, on the banks of the Humber River in the far north of Lincolnshire. It sits 3 miles east of Barton. New Holland is a hamlet in the parish, once a common point for ferryboat travel across or along the Humber River. The parish covers just over 5,000 acres.

The village of Barrow on Humber sits about 2 miles south of the Humber River. A stream, called Leden Beck, flows from the village north to the Humber. Many buildings in the centre of the village date from the 18th and 19th centuries. If you are planning a visit:
