Barkway Local History Group
A friendly organisation devoted to the diverse topic of local history
Barkway is a village and civil parish in North Hertfordshire, England. Situated 4.5 miles south east of the town of Royston, the village was once a major stopping point on the coaching route from London to Cambridge and the North East of England.
Barkway Local History Group was set up in 2018 by a small number of local residents to investigate, research and preserve the ancient and more recent history of the village for the benefit of residents and the wider community.
The Barkway Local History Group is pleased to be able to offer a varied programme of talks, committee meetings, guided walks, open day displays and visits to places of historic interest.
