The Past

Any additions or corrections the Past pages may be forwarded to Jeff Pattison e-mail

This is the home page for the Past of Barton-under-Needwood it will lead you to three additional pages. A brief description of the history of the village, a time line of what happened when in the village and a Roll of Honour in remembrance of those from the village who gave their lives in the World Wars. About 2 miles South of Barton-under-Needwood an exciting memorial is taking shape the National Memorial Arborteum which commemorates the past by creating a permanent and living gift for the future.

Anybody wanting to read more about the History of the village will need to look at "Under the Needwood Tree" a glimpse into the history of Barton-under-Needwood by Steve Gardner, which was published to commemorate the Parish Council Centenary. 

Another useful pamphlet is "A Promenade through historical Barton-under-Needwood" a Village Guide by Jeff Pattison, which was published in 1999 by Barton Civic Society to commemorate the millennium.

Or visit Gerald Carey's Aspects of Local History Web Site which display some of his original research about Thomas Russell and other aspects of local village history.
