The attractive village of Barton-le-Clay nestles at the foot of the beautiful Barton Hills, it is ringed by beautiful Bedfordshire countryside and is famous for its impressive chequered stone church.

The church, dedicated to St.Nicholas has been a place of worship for over eight hundred years. Its impressive tower is thought to be an addition of the 15th-century, this rises to a height of fifty seven feet and can be seen from most parts of the village. The interior of the church has linenfold pews which possibly date from Elizabethan times and interestingly the church displays a record of all its ministers, from its interception early in the 13th-century right up to the present day. There are many relics from the past in the church including lovely stained glass.

Around the village the special countryside is a nature reserve, this offers interest to everyone with an amazing range of wild plants, trees, bushes and natural habitats for creatures of the wild. It is a beautiful place for peaceful walks with dramatic landscape views in most directions. There are also bridle pathways for horse riders.

The village has an attractive mix of properties and all the usual village amenities, it is a friendly place with a strong community spirit and locals who are always willing to help with directions and tell you a little of "their" region.
