The Barlow, Community Hub of Edgworth..


Set within the stunning Lancashire countryside, the village of Edgworth is home to the charming estate known as The Barlow. Built in 1909 and nestled in the heart of the village the Barlow is firmly embedded in the local community, offering a place to meet, relax, play and explore for local residents and visitors to the area alike.

The Barlow has an assortment of facilities for events from private parties to corporate functions and offers a truly unique wedding venue with its captivating and attractive décor. Relax with a coffee in the Reading Room Coffee Shop and Bar, be entertained at one of our events or bring your children to the playground.

Whatever you want.. we got it..

The Woodland Walk..

Why not enjoy a bit of the outdoors and head out to explore the Barlow’s beautiful Woodland Walk? Offering something a little bit special, the trails meander through the dense trees giving a sense of real escapism. Equally, as enchanting through dappled sunlight as with a crisp frost underfoot, the woodlands offer year-round delights. Go on a bug hunt in the summer, walk amongst a carpet of bluebells in spring, be dazzled by a riot of colour as the leaves fall in autumn or enjoy the tranquillity of the snow muffled woods on a winters day.

Walkers can join the woodland walks as part of a larger route, with ample countryside around the Barlow and the wider village, you can happily while away the hours with some serious mileage accompanied by stunning scenery.

For those younger outdoor enthusiasts, a trip to the Barlow Woodland Walk is a must. Hunt out an army of minibeasts, count how many squirrels you can spot, collect a leaf in every colour or maybe just enjoy some old fashioned muddy good fun. There is so much to do, but don’t worry, the trails are just the right length for little legs.

Sports & Recreation..

The Barlow started life as a recreation ground and it is still very much at its heart today. Both the cricket club and the bowling green date back further than the Barlow building itself and both are enjoyed by many players from the surrounding area, embedding the clubs firmly in the community.

Be captivated by an afternoon of cricket as you watch from the comfort of the club viewing deck, or join the bowling club and discover this delightful game at this friendly club.

For some fabulously fun family time, the Barlow’s two playgrounds are sure to bring a smile to your little ones face. For little adventurers, the enclosed playground equipped with swings, slides and roundabouts in a variety of sizes, will keep them entertained for hours. The big kids aren’t forgotten either, with a wooden adventure playground complete with a wobbly bridge and climbing fort.

Tennis courts and a small 5-a-side pitch are also available for use establishing the Barlow as a truly diverse recreation ground.
