Barton-upon-Humber Town Information

Although there is some evidence of Roman occupation, the small town of Barton upon Humber is considered to be of Anglo-Saxon origin. It lies on the south bank of the river at the southern end of the Humber Bridge and a viewing area has been provided from which to see this magnificent structure.

At one time, Barton was a thriving industrial town producing bricks & tiles, rope and chalk which was easily transported away by river and sea.

Today the once industrial areas near the riverside have become a haven for wildlife. Visit Water's Edge Country Park and Far Ings Nature Reserve.

The Old Mill pub in Market Lane is a converted windmill, Kings Garth Mill, which was in use as a mill up to 1950.

Excavations have shown that it was built on the site of an Anglo-Saxon Cemetery.
