Barrington has a thriving community in the heart of South Cambridgeshire with over 460 dwellings, a population of about 830 people. We have a village school which was founded in 1835 and is one of the last thatched schools in the country, with nearly 100 pupils. There are various groups and clubs, a Youth Club for 11-16 year olds every Friday evening, Barrington Football Club, Barrington Cricket Club, a Village Society who look after our photo archives, Womens Institute to name but a few.
We boast a village stores with post office attached, providing us with all we may need and a very popular pub which sees numerous community events throughout the year, from a monthly vintage car rally to christmas party for the children of the village. Our village hall hosts many events and is home to a nursery school during each day.
Barrington has the longest village green in Europe and is maintained by the Green Charity. There are stunning little roads that weave their way through the Green giving access to the many beautiful homes that surround it. Our 2 play parks are visited by people from all over South Cambs.
All Saints Church is at the heart of the village, and holds regular services. Reverend Felicity is a visible member of the community. One Wednesday a month the Congregation hold a "Messy Church" for the local primary children to do craft activities and have a snack from 3.30 - 5pm.
