Welcome to Barton upon Humber

This charming town on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds in the shadow of the Humber Bridge has a lot to offer the visitor. In medieval times Barton was the most important port on the Humber and has many fine merchants' houses. Today the town centre is home to a wide range of friendly independent shops, welcoming eateries and museums. Regular events and performances are held through out the year.

The Ted Lewis Exhibition continues at Wilderspin National School

The life, times and art of Ted Lewis continues to be celebrated at the Wilderspin National School in the Aelberry Building.

The exhibition, organised by the Ted Lewis Group, has already been on display at North Lincolnshire Museum in Scunthorpe and later this year will be on display as part of Hull City of Culture.

Manchester born Lewis spent his formative years in Barton and as well as being celebrated as an author – one of his books was the novel “Jack’s Return Home” that became the film “Get Carter” (1971) starring Michael Caine – he was also gifted illustrator and jazz musician.

The exhibition can be viewed Thursday to Sunday from 11am to 3pm


Community banners on A1077/A15 Ferriby Road roundabout

Barton groups and organisations wanting to advertise forthcoming events by placing a banner on the Ferriby Road roundabout are reminded that permission first must be given by the Barton Tourism Partnership.

The Partnership has an arrangement with North Lincolnshire Council’s Highways Department to monitor the area and failure to receive permission will mean the banners will be taken down.

The protocol agreed between the Council and the Partnership was that banners must only be erected TWO WEEKS before an event and taken down at the latest 48 HOURS after it has taken place.  Groups and organisations are allowed up to two banners in every calendar year.

This arrangement, intended to be used by local groups and organisations only,  will only work if everyone complies and if not it may mean that in future North Lincolnshire Council will remove ALL banners placed there.
