The Parish of Barking has a lot of history, most of it recorded, but there is still more material to be found. There are beautiful ancient buildings, the Churches, many cottages and houses, beautiful ancient woodland and the Tye (the common).
There are many events which are organised by the Barking Community Council and these are advertised in the Four Parishes Newsletter which is delivered to most households in the village. Full details of the recent and forthcoming events can be found by following the link to the relevant page on this website.
The Village Hall is managed and maintained by the Village Hall Management Committee. Full details of the Village Hall and it's facilities can be found by following the link to the relevant page on this website.
The list of clubs and organisations shown on this website draws attention to the many and varied activities taking place in and around the village. All these organisations welcome new members. It is hoped that this website may be of use to all residents in Barking, and especially to newcomers to our community.
