North Scale

North Scale

North Scale contains what must be some of the oldest surviving buildings in the former County Borough area (there are older things in Dalton, now incorporated in the existing borough).

It’s amazing how quickly a very urban scene can be a bucolic one. It’s all superficial, however. These old farm buildings are now private residences.

  1. We used to drive past those on the way home from my nana and grandad’s house. I always said I’d live there one day. That was a long time ago and I’ve not lived in Barrow for almost 15 years! Great location and ace photo.

    Keep up the good work. For exiled Barrovians like me, your site is a godsend.

  2. Sounds a bit like bubonic to me but I looked it up and you picked the perfect word especially with the poetic meaning as well. ‘Of or characteristic of the countryside or its people; rustic.’ A pastoral poem.
