Welcome to Barnton Village

Barnton is a pleasant, large village located within the unitary authority of Cheshire West and Chester. The village lies to the north of both the Trent-Mersey canal (part of the famous Cheshire Ring) and the River Weaver, and around 2 miles to the north-west of the town of Northwich.

The village has a long, rural history, but grew rapidly in the 1800s thanks to the success of the Brunner Mond company (who occupied a large site in neighbouring Winnington) and who built hundreds of houses for their workers here. The village now boasts an excellent range of local amenities and is within easy reach of the A49, M56 and M6 making it popular with commuters to Liverpool, Manchester and Chester.

It is surrounded by wonderful Cheshire countryside and enjoys an enviable location on some of Cheshire’s most attractive inland waterways. The world-famous Anderton Boat Lift – The Cathedral of the Canals – lies under half a mile away in neighbouring Anderton, whilst Barnton itself offers two fine examples of early Victorian engineering in the Barnton and Saltersford canal tunnels, and associated air vent towers.

With more than 5,500 residents, modern Barnton is a thriving, family-friendly village within the heart of Cheshire.
