Barnacle is a small hamlet in the county of Warwickshire, England, in the civil parish of Shilton and Barnacle.[1] Historically it was divided between the parishes of Shilton and Bulkington.[2]

Barnacle was recorded in the Domesday Book as Bernhangre.[3] The Knights Hospitallers held an estate in Barnacle in the 13th century.[1] The hamlet contains Barnacle Hall which dates from 1745,[4] it was built on the site of an earlier hall which had been owned by William Hickman, who was a captain in the Cavalier army of King Charles I during the English Civil War. Because of this it was plundered and burnt down by the Roundheads.[5]

The hamlet contains some 18th century cottages, and the "Red Lion Inn".[6] It also contains a small Methodist chapel, dating from 1844.[7]
