Ingleby Barwick is a town and civil parish, with a town council. The town is on the south bank of the River Tees in North Yorkshire, Northern England and has two wards in the borough of Stockton-on-Tees. In 2011, the population was 21,045.[1] [2][3][4]

The town has expand rapidly since the late 1970s with the first housing development show room (in present day Lowfields) opening on the 30 July 1981 by the mayor of Langbaurgh.[5]



Ingleby Barwick was originally two settlements that merged. Ingleby is derived from Old Norse Englar+by (English place) named by Danes on accounts of the use of Norse-derived pronunciation of Englar, Ingle as opposed to Anglo, and ‘by’, a homophone to bee. The suffix -by is common locally, seen in Maltby, Thornaby, Coulby Newham settlements, and is used in by-law. Ingleby is a common name that is commonly tagged with other names, notably Ingleby Arncliffe and Ingleby Greenhow which are also in North Yorkshire.[6]

Early history[edit]


The settlment of Ingleby Barwick has been occupied for thousands of years. There are traces of human occupation from as far back as the Stone Age. Work at a former farm discovered prolific multi period flintwork and Iron Age field patterns in the town.[7]

A salvage excavation was carried out on the former Windmills Fields of the town, at the end of 1996. Five individual burials were found along with a wooden cist, these finds were accompanied by objects containing stone, jet and copper alloy of high status. This site was considered of European significance as it threw new light on the settlement of the area in the Bronze Age and highlighted a change in tradition of burial traditions and trade networks at this time.[8]

A Roman settlement is also apparent in the town and a Roman Villa, was excavated in part. This has been preserved as a field. [9]

Middle Ages[edit]

After the Norman invasion, the Manor of Barwick was given to King William's great chamberlain. In the 13th century the land was owned by the Priors of Guisborough & Jervaulx until the dissolution of monasteries. Between the 14th and 16th centuries landowners in the area included the Percys of Northumberland and the Parrs of Nottingham.

The Middle Ages are considered to have ended with the Renaissance in the mid 15th century. In the 17th century the Manor of Barwick was sold to Sir Thomas Lynch, Governor of Jamaica and then to Sir William Turner of Kirkleatham.

Modern history[edit]

After circa 1611, It is not known when the two separate places of Barwick and Ingleby combined there name or if Ingleby develop as a separate settlement or spawned from and then re-merged with Barwick. The land was in the ownership of the Turner's, with them gaining profits from the land used to support a free school and hospital at Kirkleatham.

Ingleby Barwick is listed as being a township in the parish of Stainton in 1887.[10][11] Its population was given as 132. During this time the land was sold off by the Turner estate. From 1894 to 1932, Ingleby Barwick was apart of the Middlesbrough Rural District.

During the wars

During the Second World War Ingleby Barwick stood near to the south-western perimeter of Thornaby Airfield and a number of aircraft crashed where Ingleby Barwick housing estate now stands. On 11 June 1940 a Coastal Command Lockheed Hudson crashed at Quarry Farm killing the four crew after the bomb load exploded on crashing.[12] On 28 April 1941 a Bristol Blenheim crashed at Barwick Lane killing all three crew.[12] On 18 December 1941 a Lockheed Hudson stalled soon after take off and crashed into Quarry Farm killing the five crew and four civilians.[12] On 4 September 1942 a Lockheed Hudson crashed at Myton House Farm killing the four crew.[12] The last aircraft accident was a Photo Reconnaissance de Havilland Mosquito which was attempting to land at Thornaby on one engine and crashed into land which is now home to Ingleby Mill School on 11 November 1943 killing both crew members; there is now a stone marking the crash site.[12][13][14]

Existing old town parish features

There are still a number of features that pre-date the 1980s-onward development.


  • Low Farm. One of the buildings is incorporated in the Teal Arms pub.
  • Cleveland View on Barwick Lane is another former farm building, belonging originally to Lane House Farm.
  • There are original buildings from Ingleby Hill Farm at the end of Heddon Grove, now residential.
  • Ingleby Close Farm buildings, which lie on land originally occupied by Betty's Close Farm, now residential, lie between Crosswell Park and Trevine Gardens.
  • The original Myton House Farm site is marked by the public house that bears its name. The pub's website says "Formally (sic) a farmhouse..."
  • Ingleby Hill Farm, an early 19th–century, Late Georgian, Grade II Listed Farmhouse.[15]
  • White House Farm, converted into houses around the late 2000s to early 2010s.


  • Black Mill on Raydale Beck is the remnant of a corn mill built on the original Sober Hall Farm, now residential.
  • The Old Mill at the southern end of Barwick Lane is now a bed and breakfast


The route of the original Barwick Lane, which gave access to much of the original farmland remains accessible. Its origin remains as a cul-de-sac, to the east of the Fox Covert Inn, High Leven on Low Lane. This then becomes a cycle path, whose route can be navigated through Sober Hall, crossing Sober Hall Avenue, Pennine Way and Blair Avenue, passing west of Barley Fields Primary School and the Myton Road shops before crossing Blair Avenue's northern loop and terminating in name at the Myton Way/The Rings roundabout. Galava Walk is the original end of Barwick Lane leading to Barwick Farm being renamed when houses South of the lane were built.

Another original road route is preserved in the cycle path that runs in a westerly direction starting from the Teal Arms / Ingleby Barwick Post Office complex, this being the approximate former site of Low Farm. This route continues to the west of Myton Way and merged into Barwick Lane, leading eventually to Barwick Farm.

The route of the original road to Betty's Close Farm is preserved in the route of the cycle path that runs from Cleveland View to Roundhill Avenue (and whose route continues along the approach to Ingleby Close Farm buildings).

The route of the original road to White House Farm is preserved in the line of trees behind Rochester Court and Thirwall Drive, continuing in the east-west cycle path from there to Blair Avenue and in the east-west footpath that runs to the south of Harlech Court.[16]

Contemporary history[edit]

From 1932, the town was in the Stokesley Rural District. In 1969 Yarmside Holdings bought land for housing. Ingleby Barwick was transferred to its current borough (Stockton-on-Tees’s) in 1974. The first houses were built at Lowfields in the late 1970s. Subsequent developments have formed the village-sized town to one of the most populous settlements in the Teesside conurbation and Tees Valley region. Housing developers, throughout the 2010s, included Taylor Wimpey, Persimmon PLC, Avant and Bellway.

Barley Fields

Barley Fields opened in September 2006 and named due to Barwick, as a name, coming from a still operating farm that formally harvest barley in the large parts of the town and was the initial township.[31]

St Francis of Assisi

St Francis of Assisi is in Broom Hill. The school is affilated with the Church of England religion and therefore St. Francis church and All Saints Academy in the town. The school is a part of the Dales Academy Trust.[32]

St. Thérèse of Lisieux

St Thérèse is a school religiously affiliated with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Middlesbrough and therefore St. Therese church in the town. The congregation previously used the school hall before the church was built.[33][34]

Notable current/former residents[edit]

Associated with a sport[edit]

Town Centre[edit]

Myton (M-a-ee-t-on) is the town centre of Ingleby Barwick. The centre has two care homes and four of Ingleby Barwick‘s schools: All Saints Academy, Myton Park, Barley Fields and St Thérèse of Liesuex.


The centre of Ingleby Barwick has taken the name of the former farm in area as opposed to Ingleby Barwick itself, however, the opposite usually occurs when a town is formed. This anachronism, to Ingleby Barwick being the town’s name, is due to Ingleby and Barwick being larger farmsteads than Myton House Farm, even today with the Myton as a public house.

Myton (between the two named farms) just so happened to be the middle of the small peninsula the town is built on and had only started to be a farmstead after the name of the town parish was formed. If natural expansion had occurred, Myton ("-ton" being derived from town) might have been the town‘s name as the name suggests. Planned mass housing development, before Myton started to congregate as a place, stopped natural expansion from happening.


In 1997 the first Bannatyne's health club was built in Myton. There has been superstore-sided shop at Myton , Tesco is the current operator, since 2004, but the store was previously operated by other supermarket chains. [29]

Myton Shops[edit]

Myton Shops include:

  • estate agent (Michael Poole)
  • hairdressers
  • barbers
  • four types of takeaway
  • health
    • GP surgery, Woodbridge Medical Centre
    • Hepworth Chemist
    • Myton Park Dental Centre
    • Hepworth optometric practice
    • Veterinary practice

The DIY shop at Myton moved to The Rings when Sandgate Shops where built.

Romano Park[edit]

Romano play-park is situated on land between Tesco and Barley Field primary school. The land was previously a field and a smaller park. The building of a play area for children under 14 years had started in January 2009 and opened thereafter opened soon after. The park also has a multi-use sport ground.[46]

IB Leisure Centre[edit]

The Ingleby Barwick Leisure Centre, located next to All Saints Academy, opened in August 2020. It includes a 25-metre swimming pool, a gym, a customer service point and the local library.[47]

Traffic and social problems[edit]

Congestion and speeding[edit]

Ingleby Barwick faces a number of problems, including traffic congestion at peak times. These are particularly a concern around Ingleby Barwick centre, and the exit on to Low Lane. Speeding is also a significant problem within the estate. On 15 July 2011, 9-year old Brandon Maggs died after being hit by a car on Roundhill Avenue. This prompted residents to launch a campaign to reduce speeding on the main estate roads.[48]

Anti-social behaviour[edit]

Graffiti on the bridge over the Tees on Queen Elizabeth Way, 2006

Social problems have long been an issue in Ingleby Barwick, and were mentioned in the 1986 Domesday project. Anti-social behaviour is currently a problem in the town, particularly around the local supermarket Tesco, other shopping areas, and Romano Park.[46] There have been a few reported incidents of muggings and assaults in the town between 2005 and date.[49][50][51][52]

In October 2006, then leader of Ingleby Barwick Independent Society (IBIS) Councillor Lee Narroway was assaulted after confronting a gang on the estate.[53] The estate's problems sometimes draw the attention of the council's enforcement team, who attempt to disperse groups of youths causing trouble at the local shops, and occasionally confiscating alcohol.[54]

It was reported in 2008 that 10% of all police call outs to Ingleby Barwick come from the estate's Tesco store, with both staff and customers feeling intimidated by gangs of youths loitering in the vicinity.[55] After the completion of Romano Park in summer 2009 it has become a hot spot for antisocial behaviour, particularly around the multi-use games area.[46][56]

In January 2011 local schools warned parents that groups of over 100 youths, some of whom were armed, were gathering outside the estate's Tesco store engaging in anti-social behaviour and intimidating the public on evenings,[57] and subsequently on August 2015 a man was seriously assaulted by a group of men close to the store.[58]

In January 2016 Cleveland Police issued a dispersal order around the centre of Ingleby Barwick following reports of intimidation, and missiles being thrown at vehicles, with the area being described as a hot spot for anti-social behaviour.[59] In March 2017 police again raised concerns about trouble and intimidation be caused to members of the public around the Ingleby Barwick Tesco store. This included throwing items at vehicles and at people.[60]

The Rings[edit]

The Rings consists of Barwick Farm, a housing development and Sandgate park. The village borders Round Hill to the south-west, Myton to the south-east and Broom Hill to the east. Preston-on-Tees (and its namesakes) is on the other side of the river Tees, to the north and east of the village.


The village has a play park, community hall and 9-hole golf course driving range with a bistro restaurant. [61][citation needed]


One of the two ways into the village, by car, is Sandgate Crossroads – this was formerly a roundabout. The Village's shopping park is named after the adjacent junction and is notably centred on food-based establishments. it has an Italian restaurant , a bistro-bar, a pizza take-away, bakery (Cooplands) and chicken house.

Sandgate also includes a Co-op Food mini-supermarket, barbers, hair salon and retail estate agent.


a path at the edge of The Rings housing with the Barwick House Farm site to the right

Barwick is an operating farm in The Rings and formed the basis and main spinal path (Barwick Lane) through Ingleby Barwick town.[6]


Barwick is of Anglo-Saxon in origin, Bere is Saxon for barley and Wick means farm.[6] This name is pronounced two ways. One way Barwick is pronounce is how the name would have came to be pronounced by locals /ˈbærɪk/ (due a shorter ‘a’ sound to coalesce of ‘r‘and ‘w’), This is similar how in Berwick-upon-Tweed is pronounced. People in settlements around Ingleby Barwick tend to pronounce Barwick this way when they have no ties to any who are not living or have lived in Ingleby Barwic since its expansion.

The second pronunciation is closer to how the individual words evolved in English and how the word is spelt, /bɑːrwɪk/. This pronuniation came about by the way housing developers pronounced it when the place expanded rapidly over decades. This pronunciation is therefore common in Ingleby Barwick itself.[62]


Farm to town[edit]

Barwick has been has been in operation since Anglo-Saxon times. After the Norman invasion The Manor of Barwick was given to Robert Malet the son of William Malet, King William's great chamberlain. In the 13th century the land was owned by the Priors of Guisborough & Jervaulx until the dissolution of monasteries. The Manor of Barwick was given to Robert Malet the son of William Malet, King William's great chamberlain. Ingleby and Barwick were two separate places. Between the 14th to 17th century, it is not known when Barwick merged with Ingleby as a parish then town.

Former Quarry[edit]

Site of an old road from Barwick Farm to the former Quarry, incorporated into the paving layout

The former Quarry and farm site is covered be the Ingleby Barwick Golf Academy and north of the housing development. Building work at Quarry farm discovered prolific concentrations of multi period flintwork along the South Bank of the River Tees and traces of Iron Age field patterns were discovered.[7] A Roman Villa circa 200 AD, perhaps the most northerly in UK, was excavated in part. This has been preserved as a grassed area as The Forum field.[9] The "official" report on the excavation was published in 2013 with the title "A Roman Villa at the Edge of Empire" ( ISBN 978-1-902771-90-8 )

Housing development[edit]

before the housing development
Porchester Close

The Ring housing development is named after a meandering of the river Tees, to the west of the village. Roads are named after Romano-British street and places to show the villages association with the a roman site.

Houses built when the village was developed were built by Persimmon plc and its subsidiary Charles Church Developments. Taylor Wimpey, a long-term developer of houses in Ingleby Barwick, also contributed through an agreement with Persimmon. Both developers have local-bases, Taylor Wimpey in Preston Farm Industrial Estate and Persimmon in Teesdale Industrial Estate, Thornaby.

In 2016, due to the housing development of The Rings being built, Myton Way was upgraded to dual-carrigeway from the Tesco roundabout to Broom Hill, and the Sandgate roundabout was replaced with traffic signals. Ingleby Way was also dualled from the Tesco roundabout to Barwick Way roundabout. The works started on Monday 29 February 2016 and were completed on Thursday 22 December 2016, apart from some footpath work.[63]

Gold Postbox[edit]

The village is home to one of the Royal Mail Olympic Golden Postboxes. It is in honour of Kat Copeland's rowing gold at the 2012 Summer Games in London. The post box is located at the end of Apsley Way.[64]
