If you are interested in the history of the village of Barford in Norfolk, you have found a good place to start. Situated between the beautiful upper Yare valley and the river Tiffey rising at the nearby medieval market town of Wymondham.
The Barford History and Community Group meets monthly at the Village Hall from 14.00-16.30 and all are welcome. We are not just open for villagers from Barford either, so if you have an interest in history, have a project you would like to explore or talk about, come along to use our free wifi, or just pop in for a cup of tea and some cake - you will find a warm welcome here.
New evening events! - see foot of page

WW1 Rural Heritage Open Days
This year, as part of the First World War Centenary commemoration, Barford joined forces with surrounding villages and towns along the Yare and Tiffey Valleys.
St Botolph's church is still hosting displays revealing

been delightfully preserved and serves as a hub of our local community, we would
welcome anyone who wishes to come and soak up the atmosphere over the weekend.
