Around the Village

Barham, as we know it today, was formed of two hamlets - Barham and Derringstone.   It has existed since at least AD799 and has a history that is not only local but attached to national events.

There is a Parish Map that will help locate different areas.   more...

The village has been awarded five conservation areas and also contains four protected historic earthwork areas.   more...

There are a number of interesting buildings.   more...

During some winters an intermittent stream flows through the village for some months.   This is known as "The Nailbourne" and it is unpredictable in both start and finish dates and strength of current.   more...

There are many listed structures ranging from Broome Park, once owned by Lord Kitchener of Khartoum to a 1936 telephone box.   There are a number of older houses within the two original hamlets joined by newer homes that link the two.     more...

Much more information will be published shortly by the Barham Downs History Society.
