Welcome to the Barlow Parish Council website

Through this website we hope to keep all residents informed about village affairs, plus details of the Parish Council and its activities.  We also want the website to reflect the life of our village and provide interesting articles about its community, history and culture.  If you would like to put any information, pictures or articles relevant to Barlow and its surroundings on this website, please contact the parish clerk Miss Rosie Dean.



We currently have a vacancy for one councillor. If you are interested please see below.

  Relevant information and how to apply for co-option



We are looking for a gardener/handy person to work approximately 10 hours per month keeping the village hall, memorial garden and carpark area tidy and weed free.  There will also be other areas around the village which require attention and odd jobs as they arise, some of which may be heavier duty.

You must have own tools, take a pride in the village and your work, and be polite to the residents.
