On the A429 road from Warwick to Cirencester and beyond, Barford is a pleasant village. St Peter's church is just off this road - into the village proper at a mini roundabout near the Joseph Arch pub. There is a new bypass to the village, therefore you need to look out for the signs.
One of the newer rings of 6 in the Diocese, these were installed in 1994 during the incumbency of a ringing vicar, the late Gordon Benfield, being an augmentation from a ringable 3. These had been rehung by Taylors in 1909. At this point the bells were hung in a lowside frame, quarter turned and the canons were removed. The third was originally the treble of the ring of 3 at Atherstone on Stour. It retains its canons.
The entrance is from inside the church and limited on-street parking is available near to the church.
