Barton village pond
- Church of England: St Peter's
Both churches are on Church Lane. There are some pictures and a description of the mediæval St Peter's at the Cambridgeshire Churches website.
Barton's village shop complex includes a shoe shop, hair and beauty salon, garage, and Conkers Stores, a traditional village shop and Post Office, and the area's only petrol station. There are two public houses in the village: The Hoops, on New Road; and the White Horse Inn, on the High Street. Barton is also home to a country shopping complex, Burwash Manor Barns, housing among other businesses a butcher, organic grocer, tea rooms, toyshop, wine merchant, and Persian rug outlet. The complex attracts visitors from across Cambridgeshire.
Employment within the village is very limited. Most residents commute to work at locations across southern Cambridgeshire and in London.
Between the High Street and A603 Wimpole Road lies the village's recreation ground, with a full size football pitch, tennis courts, half pipe, children's play area, pavilion, bowls club, car park, dog walks, and rough ground for general recreation. A village hall neighbours the school.
The Cambridge Rifle Range is 200 yards north of the village, where regular military training takes place.
The picture right shows The Cambridge Universities Travelling Radio Telescope Array, which is just south of the village and can be seen from most places within the village. The dishes are situated along about 3 miles of “Beechingised” railway line. By combining the signals from a number of small dishes the effective size of the receiver is increased significantly.
