Ye Olde Globe and Chequers the local Bed and Breakfast

The Victorian guest house in the village, first dwelling on this site was built in the 16th century and was lost to fire in 1855. The brewhouse was saved and the dwelling that now stands became the village inn known as The Globe and even though the brew house was demolished the Inn served the village up until 1965. The original stable block built for the dray houses and the blacksmith’s forge has subsequently been converted and are now part of this idyllic guest house known as Ye Odle Globe and Chequers.

Barham has over time been known by various spellings. Bercheham (11th Century) Bercham, Bergham, Berwham, Berewam, Bereuham, Beruham (13th Century) Barram, Barrham (16th Century) Barham (Modern)

Barham is around 200 feet above sea level. The church dates from the 12th Century with a modern late Norman doorway.
