Reputedly listed in the Doomesday Book as "Birchwig" Birch Way, Barkway has a number of 15th and 16th Century properties, some with beautifully thatched roofs. Most properties are on or near the High Street, which is part of the old London to Cambridge coaching route. Barkway has had a village church for over 1,000 years. The current flint and stone church, which is over 800 years old, has a full peal of 8 bells which are rung every week. The village has an infants' school, The Tally Ho Pub, a recreation ground with children's play area and football pitch, a Golf Course, a Garage and a number of active social organisations. Two major country estates are adjacent to the north of the village: "Cokenach" - which has a long-established cricket club and "Newsells" which is now an impressive Stud Farm.
