Where to find us

We are located in the village of Barrow on Trent in South Derbyshire.

St Wilfrid’s Church
Church Lane
Barrow-on-Trent
Derby
DE73 7HB

There is no parking outside the church but there is a car park located a short walk away at The Susie Dixon Memorial Park on Twyford Road. (opposite the Village Hall)

Our opening times

The church will be open and stewarded between 2.00 pm and 4.00 pm on Wednesdays and Saturdays between the beginning of April and the end of October each year.  This is in addition to all of the other events in the church in our programme.

St Wilfrid’s Church is also open to visitors during all of our advertised events; just look for the flag in the churchyard to say that the church is open.  In addition, the services each month are advertised on the website and the church noticeboard – you are welcome to come in for a look around before and after the main service.

For security reasons, we are not able to leave the church open and unattended.  However, you can always email on stwilfridsbarrow@gmail.com to book a visit if you would like to tour the church.

  1. My ancestry line is the Bancrofts and many are said to have died there. Do you have burial records from the 1600 to 1700s? My daughter and I are coming fom the US in May and would love to be in contact with someone about researching our roots in your community. Thanks, Ruth Densey
