Barwick-in-Elmet is a village in West Yorkshire, 7 miles east of Leeds city centre. It is one of only three places in the area to be explicitly associated with the ancient Romano-British kingdom of Elmet, the others being Scholes-in-Elmet and Sherburn-in-Elmet; the village is part of the civil parish of Barwick in Elmet and Scholes and sits in the Harewood ward of Leeds City Council and Elmet and Rothwell parliamentary constituency. The village includes Hall Tower Hill earthworks part of a large Iron Age fort centred on Wendel Hill, used as the site of a Norman motte-and-bailey castle and as a Second World War observation post; the land is under joint ownership, held as a trust for the benefit of the community. Ex-local MP Colin Burgon made it the subject of an Adjournment Debate in the House of Commons on 10 July 2007, Minister of State for the Department for Culture and Sport, Margaret Hodge, replied; the name Barwick comes from the Old English words bere and wic, thus meaning'a barley farm' or'an outlying grange or part on an estate reserved for the lord's use, producing barley'.
The name is first attested in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Bereuuith. There is reference to an agricultural settlement in the Domesday Book of 1086. From a taxation survey, it is known that in 1379 there were 197 adults living in about 100 households. For some time the Manor of Barwick and Scholes was in the ownership of the Gascoigne family of Parlington and Lotherton. In 1720 the first known school in Barwick in Elmet opened. Morwick Hall was built in the mid to late 18th century for Edward Gray, Lord Mayor of Leeds in 1749 and 1768. By 1821 the parish had a population of 1,481; the Cross Gates to Wetherby railway line opened in 1874, with a station in nearby Scholes, enabling residents to commute to Leeds city centre. This service remained running until 1965. Throughout the 20th century the village grew with many modern houses being built in and around the village by both private developers and the local corporations. During this period many of the older cottages in the village centre were converted into shops and other small business premises.
For much of its history the village supported a agricultural community. From the late 17th century until the early 20th century many residents were employed in the local mining industry in Garforth, Cross Gates and Whitkirk. Today, whilst still having a rural agricultural feel, the village supports many trades as well as housing for people who work in Leeds and York. Barwick-in-Elmet comes under the civil parish of Scholes; this comes under the governance of Leeds City Council. Barwick lies within the parliamentary constituency of Elmet and Rothwell which since May 2010 has been held by the Conservative MP, Alec Shelbrooke. One of the most notable village landmarks is the wooden maypole 86 feet high that stands at the junction of Main Street and the Cross; the triennial maypole festival brings large crowds to the area. Every three years, the maypole is lowered, maintained and re-erected; the festival celebrations include a procession, children's maypole dancing, morris dancing, a street craft market, the raising of the maypole ceremony and the maypole queen.
Traditionally the maypole was lowered and raised manually using an intricate system of ropes and ladders. Although methods have changed in recent years, the maypole is still carried by hand from Hall Tower Hill to the heart of the village. During the raising ceremony, it is tradition for a local villager to climb halfway up the pole to disconnect the guide ropes; the climber is spurred on by a large crowd to climb all the way to the top of the pole, to spin'the fox' weather vane. The festival takes place every 3 years, the most recent one being 29 May 2017. Beside the maypole is what appears to be an old village cross, but, a memorial to the dead of the First World War, carved in the old fashioned style. Barwick has the New Inn, the Black Swan and the Gascoigne Arms. There are two general stores. There are further amenities in nearby Garforth, Cross Gates and Wetherby, all of which have supermarkets. There are nearby secondary schools in Pendas Fields, Seacroft, Boston Spa and Wetherby. There are one Church of England and one Methodist.
Barwick parish church is a grade II* listed building. It includes Anglo-Saxon and Norman stonework, with a 14th-century chancel and various additions and alterations; the Unitarian minister Newcome Cappe was married here on 19 February 1788 on his second marriage to Catherine Cappe. The Methodist church is a 1900 Wesleyan chapel close to the maypole and a street called the Boyle, it replaced an earlier 1804 building on Chapel Lane, which became the Miners' Welfare Institute, is now used for communal activities. The local newspaper is the Wetherby News whilst the regional newspaper is the Yorkshire Evening Post; the local BBC radio station is BBC Radio Leeds, whilst there are many other independent local radio stations in the area. There are cinemas nearby in Leeds and Castleford; the theme tune to The Archers is called "Barwick Green". It was written by Yorkshire composer Arthur Wood in 1924, as a "maypole dance" in his suite My native heath; the other items in this suite are "Ilkley Tarn", "Bolton Abbey" and "Knaresborough Status".

Barwick is a village and parish in Somerset, situated 2 miles south of Yeovil in the South Somerset district and on the border with Dorset. The parish, which includes the village of Stoford has a population of 1,221; the earliest signs of habitation in the area were the relics of a Bronze Age burial which were found in 1826, a little to the north of the village of Stoford, which may be a Saxon name derived from Stow-Ford. Settlement may go back as far as Saxon times, the earliest mention of Barwick being in 1185. In the Middle Ages, Stoford was shown as a new town and in an Inquisition or survey of 1273 there were 74 burgages each paying 10d a year; the total population of the borough in 1273 was over 500. Stoford kept its borough status for at least 300 years. A guildhall was mentioned in 1361 and there is proof of a separate borough court. There was still a'borough of Stoford' in the musters of 1569; the parish was part of the hundred of Houndsborough. The parish council is responsible for local issues.
It sets an annual precept to cover the council's operating costs and produces annual accounts for public scrutiny. The parish council evaluates local planning applications and works with the local police, district council officers, neighbourhood watch groups on matters of crime and traffic; the parish council's role includes initiating projects for the maintenance and repair of parish facilities, as well as consulting with the district council on the maintenance and improvement of highways, footpaths, public transport and street cleaning. Conservation matters and environmental issues are the responsibility of the council; the village falls within the non-metropolitan district of South Somerset, formed on 1 April 1974 under the Local Government Act 1972, having been part of Yeovil Rural District. The district council is responsible for local planning and building control, local roads, council housing, environmental health and fairs, refuse collection and recycling and crematoria, leisure services and tourism.
Somerset County Council is responsible for running the largest and most expensive local services such as education, social services, main roads, public transport and fire services, trading standards, waste disposal and strategic planning. It is part of the Yeovil county constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom, it elects one Member of Parliament by the first past the post system of election, part of the South West England constituency of the European Parliament which elects seven MEPs using the d'Hondt method of party-list proportional representation. The estate formed part of the property of Syon Abbey, passed through various hands after the Dissolution in the 1530s; the present house and park are thought to have been built in 1770 by John and Grace Newman, whose relations owned neighbouring Newton Surmaville. The house was set in pleasure grounds containing a lake and grotto, while the surrounding parkland was ornamented with a Gothic lodge and a group of four follies.
In the early 19th century the estate passed to Thomas Messiter, a barrister, John Newman's nephew and in 1830 the mansion was remodelled in a Jacobean Revival style. An orangery was constructed adjoining the north side at the same period. During the early 20th century the estate was let to various persons. During World War II, it was the location of a prisoner of war camp housing Italian prisoners from the Western Desert Campaign, German prisoners after the Battle of Normandy. Following derequisition of the property, after the war, the Messiter family carried out considerable modernisation and repairs and took up residence, they remained there until some time in the 1960s. From the late 1960s through to the early 1980s the mansion and surrounding grounds were let to a Major Arthur Grey for use as a run approved school taking in difficult teenage boys from inner-city London and several other local authorities around the country; this school was home to T. S. Gryphon, a Sea Cadet unit, with affiliations to H.
M. S. Hampshire and nearby H. M. S. Heron. In the 1990s the estate was sold to a private owner, substantial repairs were carried out to the house and landscape structures; the site remains in private ownership. Barwick Park boasts four follies. Locals say they were built to give the estate labourers work during a time of depression in the 1820s, they were commissioned by George Messiter of Barwick to mark the park boundaries at the four cardinal points: Jack the Treacle Eater to the east, the Fish Tower in the north, Messiter's Cone, 75 feet high, at the west end and the Needle to the south. However, paintings of Barwick House in the 1780s, forty years earlier, include two of the follies; the follies collectively rank on Countryfile's 2009 countdown of "Britain's top 10 follies". The parish contains Yeovil Junction railway station, on the London–Exeter line; the Church of Saint Mary Magdalene is just off the A37 at the western end of the village, about half a mile away from the main centre of population.
The church was built before 1219 as a chapel of the minster church in Yeovil. It has been rebuilt and restored since in the 1850 when the chancel was rebuilt. There is still a weekly service; the ecclesiastical parish is now part of the benefice of Yeovil. The most architecturally significant features of the church are the bench ends, dating from 1533 - the eve of the English Reformation; the bench ends depict scenes from village life as well as typical pagan s
"Barwick Green" is the theme music to the long-running BBC Radio 4 soap opera The Archers. A "maypole dance" from the suite My Native Heath written in 1924 by the Yorkshire composer Arthur Wood, it is named after Barwick-in-Elmet in Yorkshire's West Riding; the recording used between 1950 and the 1990s was played by Sidney Torch and his orchestra. Sidney Torch recorded a commercial release of "Barwick Green" in the 1950s, but it was not used on The Archers itself; the familiar opening 7 notes are echoed in the pizzicato in Benjamin Britten's Simple Symphony, written in 1934. The Sunday omnibus broadcast of The Archers starts with a more rustic, accordion-arranged rendition by The Yetties, while the theme for BBC Radio 4 Extra's The Archers spinoff, Ambridge Extra, is a version arranged by Bellowhead
Ingleby Barwick is a large private residential housing estate and civil parish built on what was the southern perimeter of Thornaby airfield in the borough of Stockton-on-Tees and ceremonial county of North Yorkshire, England. In 2011, the population was 21,045; the estate is enclosed by water to the west and east. It was opened in 1981 by the mayor of Langbaurgh. Although the development of Ingleby Barwick, as the housing estate, present today, did not start until the late 1970s, the land has been occupied for thousands of years. Ingleby Barwick has a ceremonial Coat of Arms; the arms contain a representation of the three rivers. It depicts mill-rinds which are an historical link to the Turner family, who used to own the land which now forms Ingleby Barwick; the crest shows a Teal bird which refers to a horse named Teal, trained at Middleham by Captain Neville Crump, which won the Grand National in 1952. There are traces of human occupation from as far back as the Stone Age. Work at Quarry farm has discovered prolific concentrations of multi period flintwork along the South Bank of the River Tees in this area.
Traces of Iron Age field patterns were discovered at Quarry Farm. A salvage excavation was carried out in the Windmills Fields area of the town at the end of 1996. Five individual burials were found along with a wooden cist, these finds were accompanied by objects containing stone and copper alloy of high status; this site was considered of European significance as it threw new light on the settlement of the area in the Bronze age and highlighted a change in tradition of burial traditions and trade networks at this time. Roman settlement is apparent in the town and a Roman Villa circa 200 AD the most northerly in UK, was excavated in part; this has been preserved as a grassed area in The Forum area of Ingleby Barwick. The "official" report on the excavation was published in 2013 with the title "A Roman Villa at the Edge of Empire" The name Ingleby Barwick is derived from both Viking and Saxon place names. Ingleby is derived from Old Norse Englar+by and means'farmstead or village of the English man', Barwick is Saxon in origin, Bere is Saxon for barley and Wick means farm.
This suggests. It may have been that until the 17th century and Barwick were two separate places. After the Norman invasion The Manor of Barwick was given to Robert Malet the son of William Malet, King William's great chamberlain. In the 13th century the land was owned by the Priors of Guisborough & Jervaulx until the dissolution of monasteries. Between the 14th and 16th centuries landowners included the Percys of Northumberland and the Parrs of Nottingham; the Middle Ages are considered to have ended with the Renaissance in the mid 15th century In the 17th century the Manor of Barwick was sold to Sir Thomas Lynch, Governor of Jamaica and to Sir William Turner of Kirkleatham. The land remaining in the ownership of the Turner's, with profits from the land used to support the free school and hospital at Kirkleatham, until it was sold in the 19th century. Ingleby Barwick is listed as being a township in the parish of Stainton in 1887, its population was given as 132. During this time the land was sold off by the Turner estate.
During the Second World War Ingleby Barwick stood near to the south-western perimeter of Thornaby Airfield and a number of aircraft crashed where Ingleby Barwick housing estate now stands. On 11 June 1940 a Coastal Command Lockheed Hudson crashed at Quarry Farm killing the four crew after the bomb load exploded on crashing. On 28 April 1941 a Bristol Blenheim crashed at Barwick Lane killing all three crew. On 18 December 1941 a Lockheed Hudson stalled soon after take off and crashed into Quarry Farm killing the five crew and four civilians. On 4 September 1942 a Lockheed Hudson crashed at Myton House Farm killing the four crew; the last aircraft accident was a Photo Reconnaissance de Havilland Mosquito, attempting to land at Thornaby on one engine and crashed into land, now home to Ingleby Mill School on 11 November 1943 killing both crew members. In 1969 Yarmside Holdings bought land for housing and the first houses were built at Lowfields in the late 1970s. Since there has been a major undertaking to build new housing and at one time Ingleby Barwick was reputed to be the largest private housing estate in Europe.
It is the home to one of the Olympic Golden Postboxes in honour of Kat Copeland's rowing gold at the 2012 London Olympics. The post box is located at the end of Apsley Way in The Rings. There are still a number of features that pre-date the 1980s-onward development: The route of the original Barwick Lane, which gave access to much of the original farmland remains accessible, its origin remains to the east of the Fox Covert Inn on Low Lane. This becomes a cycle path, whose route can be navigated through Sober Hall, crossing Sober Hall Avenue, Pennine Way and Blair Avenue, passing close by Barley Fields Primary School and the Myton Road shops before crossing Blair Avenue's northern loop and terminating at the Myton Way/The Rings roundabout. Another original road route is preserved in the cycle path that runs in a westerly direction starting from the Teal Arms / Ingleby Barwick Post Office complex, this being the approximate former site of Low Farm; this route continues to the west of Myton Way, leading to Barwick Farm.
Low Farm. One of the buildings is incorporated in the Teal Arms pub. Black Mill on Raydale Beck is the remnant of a corn mill built on the original Sober Hall Farm, now residential; the Old Mill at the southern end of Barwick Lane is now a bed and breakfast Cleveland View on Barw
Iddesleigh is a village and civil parish in the county of Devon, England. The settlement is listed in the Domesday Book; the village lies on the B3217 road central in its parish of around 2,900 acres, about eight miles north of the town of Okehampton. Iddesleigh has been described as an attractive small village, with good views of Dartmoor to the south, its church is a grade I listed building and there are a number of other listed buildings in the parish. Sir Stafford Northcote owned most of the parish at one time and took the title of Earl of Iddesleigh, though he never lived here. Author Michael Morpurgo has lived here since the 1970s; the name Iddesleigh derives from the Old English personal name, Ēadwīġ, lēah, a wood or clearing. The first documentary evidence of the settlement appears in the Domesday Book, where it is referred to twice, as Edeslege and as Iweslei. By the 13th century its name was recorded in 1428 as Yeddeslegh. Domesday Book shows that in 1086 the majority of the manor of Iddesleigh was owned directly by the king, but a small part of it was held from the king by William of Claville.
The pre-conquest owner of this land is unclear: two women's names – Alware Pet and Aelfeva Thief – are recorded. The overlord is recorded as Brictric son of Algar. By the 13th century the lands had passed to the de Reigny family as part of the honour of Gloucester; the village is three miles north-east of Hatherleigh and eight miles north of Okehampton. It is in the centre of its parish, on the B3217 road that runs from Okehampton to Atherington, near the A377; the parish, which covers about 2,900 acres on the Culm Measures, has its southern border along the River Okement and its western along the River Torridge. Clockwise from the north, it is bordered by the parishes of Dowland, Broadwoodkelly, Monkokehampton and Meeth. In 2001, the population of the parish was 198, down from 335 in 1901, 441 in 1801; the landscape historian W. G. Hoskins, writing in 1953, described the village as "an excellent example of a cob and thatch village, most attractive to explore", in 1973 S. H. Burton wrote that it gave the appearance of being "thatchier" than anywhere else in Devon.
Situated on a south-facing slope, the village has good views of northern Dartmoor, including its highest point, High Willhays. The Church of St James, the parish church, is at the western edge of the village, is a grade I listed building. With 13th-century origins, but dating from the 15th century, it has wagon roofs in its nave and north aisle. A recumbent effigy of a knight with a plain shield, lying under an arch has been dated to c. 1250 and is believed to be of a squire of Iddesleigh, a member of the locally-notable Sully family. The church was rebuilt in 1720 with further work in the early 19th century, followed by restoration by Charles S. Adye in 1878–9; the listed village pub, the "Duke of York", is made of cob and thatch, is hidden from the main road being along a side street behind some terraced cottages. Its facade was used in the BBC television series Down to Earth, broadcast in 2000, it was in this pub that Michael Morpurgo says he talked to an old soldier with first-hand knowledge of the use of horses in the First World War which became the basis for his 1982 novel War Horse.
The village was used as inspiration for the Michael Morpurgo novel, Private Peaceful. Ash House, a grade II listed building in the south of the parish, was the seat of the Mallet family from 1530 to 1881, it was bought by the founders of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust. There has been a settlement at Barwick, in the south-east corner of the parish, since at least the early 15th century: a document dated 1440 refers to it as Berewyke. There are two listed buildings here. Little Barwick is a late 15th-century building with 17th-century and alterations—its most notable feature is its medieval full cruck trusses, unusual in Devon. South Barwick Farmhouse dates from the first part of the 17th century. Barwick had a stud farm breeding shire horses before World War I; the "Barwick Madam" was noted in the local shire horse stud book. The Tarka Trail, a series of footpaths and cycle routes radiating from Barnstaple, passes from north to south through the parish, taking in the village; the Reverend Jack Russell, originator of the eponymous dog breed, was curate at Iddesleigh between 1830 and 1836.
In 1885, when Sir Stafford Northcote was raised to the peerage, he took the title of Earl of Iddesleigh, which was, according to W. G. Hoskins, a curious choice since his main estates were not here, he did, own some 2,000 acres of the parish. The Scottish-born poet, Seán Rafferty lived in the parish from 1948 until his death in December 1993. Rafferty was a friend of author Michael Morpurgo. In his book Private Peaceful, the village is the home of the protagonist, it is one of the main settings for the book. In 1976 Morpurgo and his wife, set up the Farms for City Children charity, based at Nethercott House in the parish. Poet Ted Hughes who lived nearby was a close friend and regular visitor to the Morpurgos and became the first president of the charity
