The Barlow Edgworth
Set within the stunning Lancashire countryside, the delightful village of Edgworth is home to the charming estate known as The Barlow. Built in 1909 and nestled in the heart of the village the Barlow is firmly embedded in the local community, offering a place to meet, relax, play and explore for local residents and visitors to the area alike.
The Barlow has an assortment of facilities for events from private parties to corporate functions, and offers a truly unique wedding venue with its captivating and attractive décor. Relax with a coffee in the Reading Room, or be mesmerised by a play performed in the spacious main hall. Families will love the newly-opened art studio, where kids can learn through colourful creative play.
Away from the building the Barlow estate offers you much more. An array of sports and recreation activities wait to be enjoyed, including a thriving cricket club, a finely-laid bowling green, and a well-equipped children’s playground that caters for little kids and big ones too! Adventures are just waiting to be had in the extensive woodlands, where tumbling streams and leafy trails reveal enchanting bridges and a stunning waterfall.
