Both buildings are now dwelling houses; the church of the Holy Saviour was built in 1850 at Great Barugh to serve as the small parish. The Parish was formed when there was little difference to the people between the church and the state.

The parish of Kirby Misperton was formed around other small settlements. According to census information, the population of Barugh has declined since 1881, decreasing from 261 in 1881 to 153 in 1961; the population saw slight increases in 1911 and 1931.

Agriculture has always been the main occupations for the villagers but since World War One and the rapid mechanization that followed agriculture in Barugh has declined. In the Census of 1881 it is recorded, it is apparent many of the women in the village worked in Offices. Many women were recorded as having unspecified work. Agriculture was the biggest employer of the village in 1881. There has been a shift in industry since 1881. Reasons for this could be due to due to population decrease in Barugh. Today in Barugh, 13 people work in Wholesale or Retail trade and 12 people work in human health and social work; this is a massive shift in industry, people will commute to get to work now and not work in the village

Pac-12 Conference Men's Basketball Tournament

The Pac-12 Conference Men's Basketball Tournament, otherwise known as the Pac-12 Tournament, is the annual concluding tournament for the NCAA college basketball in the Pac-12, taking place in Las Vegas at the T-Mobile Arena. The predecessor conference of the Pac-12, the Pacific Coast Conference, began playing basketball in the 1915–16 season; the PCC was split into South Divisions for basketball beginning with the 1922 -- 23 season. The winners of the two divisions would play a best of three series of games to determine the PCC basketball champion. If two division teams tied, they would have a one-game playoff to produce the division representative. Starting with the first edition of the event now known as the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament in 1939, the winner of the PCC divisional playoff was given the automatic berth in the NCAA tournament. Oregon, the 1939 PCC champion, won the championship game in the 1939 NCAA Basketball Tournament; the last divisional playoff was in the 1954–55 season.

After that, there was no divisional play and all teams played each other in a round robin competition. From the 1955–56 season through the 1985–86 season, the regular season conference champion was awarded the NCAA tournament berth from the PCC AAWU, Pac-8 and Pac-10. Beginning with the 1975 NCAA Tournament, the league would place at least one other at-large team in the tournament. Following the end of UCLA's dominance in the 1970s, the Pac-10 would struggle to get out of the early rounds of the NCAA tournament. By the 1985–86 season, the Pac-10 was one of three remaining conferences that gave their automatic NCAA tournament bid to the regular season round-robin champion; the other two conferences were the Big Ten Conference. The modern tournament format began in 1987; the first incarnation of the tournament ran from 1987 to 1990. UCLA was awarded the inaugural tournament, won by the Bruins, the Arizona Wildcats took the next three. Citing academic concerns, it was dropped after 1990 upon opposition from coaches, poor revenue, poor attendance.

The Pac-10 went back to having the regular season champion get awarded the automatic NCAA tournament bid for the 1990–2001 seasons. During that time, Arizona and UCLA both won NCAA championships. In 1998, the Big Ten began to hold a conference tournament, leaving the Pac-10 and Ivy League the lone conferences without postseason tournaments; the Pac-10 tournament was restarted by an 8–2 vote of the athletic directors of the conference in 2000 after determining that a tournament would help increase exposure of the conference and help the seeding of the schools in the NCAA tournament. Stanford University and the University of Arizona opposed the tournament, while UCLA's and USC's votes, considered the deciding votes, were swayed by permanently hosting the tournament at Staples Center. Los Angeles is the second largest media market in the United States; the championship game has been broadcast nationally by CBS Sports. With the 2011 championship game attracting only 12,074 paid attendees, less than two-thirds the capacity of Staples Center, commissioner Larry Scott reopened bids from other cities to host the Pac-12 Tournament.

Other models including a round-robin model and hosting the tournament at conference sites have been considered. Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, Seattle submitted bids for consideration. On March 13, 2012, the Pac-12 Tournament was moved to the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, for a three-year term; the tournament moved to T-Mobile Arena. Effective with the 2012–13 season, as part of the new television contract signed with Fox Sports and ESPN, one quarterfinal game, one semifinal game, the championship game will rotate between Fox Sports and ESPN, with ESPN obtaining odd year tournaments and Fox Sports numbered tournaments. All other games are broadcast on the Pac-12 Network. From 1987 to 1990 and 2006 to 2011, all ten teams participated in the tournament, with the top six teams receiving a bye in the opening round. Between 2002 and 2005, only the top eight teams in the conference participated in the tournament. Of the Pac-12 schools, only Washington State has never played in the championship game.

In 2010 with USC on probation, only nine teams participated. Since 2012, all 12 teams have participated with the top four teams getting byes into the quarterfinals. Note: No tournament held between 1990 and 2002. 4 – Lute Olson 3 – Sean Miller 3 – Lorenzo Romar 3 – Dana Altman 2 – Ben Howland 2 – Ernie Kent 1 – Mike Montgomery 1 – Walt Hazzard 1 – Tim Floyd 1 – Tad Boyle 1 – Steve Alford – Dana Altman, – Walt Hazzard, – Sean Miller, – Lute Olson, – Tim Floyd, – Bill Frieder, – Tad Boyle, – Steve Alford, – Jim Harrick, – Ben Howland, – Lorenzo Romar, – Henry Bibby, – Cuonzo Martin, – Ernie Kent, – Ben Braun, – Andy Enfield, – Tony Bennett, – Steve Lavin
