Barrow-in-Furness is situated on the southern tip of Cumbria, to the north of Morecambe Bay and only 20 minutes from The Lake District. Barrow's principal road link is the A590, linking it to Ulverston, The Lake District and the M6 motorway.

Barrow is the principle commercial, retail and cultural centre for South West Cumbria with a catchment of over 130,000 incorporating neighbouring towns such as Dalton, Ulverston and Millom. Barrow is the largest town in South Cumbria and is known throughout the world for its rich history in shipbuilding which is now centred around advance development of submarines driven by BAE Systems who continue to invest significant capital creating thousands of jobs as well as feeder contracts to local businesses. Other major employers include Kimberly-Clark, producer of products for Kleenex and Andrex, GSK, an international pharmaceutical company which is extending its factory site in Ulverston to provide a new state-of-the-art Biopharmaceutical manufacturing facility and the Sellafield nuclear fuel reprocessing and decommissioning site, a short distance up the north west coast.

The town has two sixth form colleges as well as a number of primary, junior and secondary schools and culturally, there is a wide range of leisure facilities, restaurant, hotels, a pedestrianised town centre with national retailers including Debenhams and Marks and Spencer's and a good choice of supermarkets. The Lake District National Park is less than 20 minutes away and there are a range of beaches, all within a 10-15 minute drive.

Salthouse Mills is located within the southern part of Barrow, accessed via Salthouse Road which connects with the A5087 travelling west into Barrow town centre and east to Holbeck, Roose Train Station as well as a Tesco supermarket, all within 0.5 miles. The A5087 also connects with the Coast Road to the south east eventually meeting up with Ulverston, approximately 10 miles away and taking in the attractive Morecambe Bay coastline. Risedale Road is approximately 300m to the north west and links up with Park Drive and the A590 Abbey Road around 1.5 miles to the north.
