Barbon is a village and civil parish in the South Lakeland district of Cumbria, England. According to the 2001 census it had a population of 263. The church is dedicated to St Bartholomew. The village is about 3 miles (4.8 km) north of Kirkby Lonsdale and 2 miles (3.2 km) north of Casterton. Barbon Beck flows through, and takes its name from, the village before flowing into the River Lune. The A683 road passes to the west of the village between Kirkby Lonsdale and Sedbergh. The village is a few miles outside the Yorkshire Dales National Park—but within a proposed extension that is under consultation and awaiting approval.
Barbon is the location of Barbon Manor Speed Hillclimb, an event that runs on three occasions each year, in May, June and July, on a driveway that runs through Barbon Manor Park, by permission of the Shuttleworth Estate.
A family history study, written in 1913 called "The Hardys of Barbon, and some other Westmoreland Statesmen : Their Kith, Kin and Childer" follows the family history of the Hardy family from Barbon from the 16th century up until the late 19th century, and has recently been republished by Bibliolife.
