The Barrow is a hamlet in Gloucestershire, on a loop of road in the Vale of Gloucester, close to Boddington to the north-east and Staverton to the south-east. Rural as it is the hamlet is still just two and a half miles from the edge of the swelling suburbs of Cheltenham to the east.

By the hamlet is ISS Boddington, an installation of Information Systems & Services, an operating cluster of the Ministry of Defence. It was formerly RAF Boddington, a non-flying Royal Air Force station where No. 9 Signals Unit RAF was based.
