About Barrows Butchers

Barrow’s Butchers have been trading from the same shop at 1 Henshall Road, Bollington, Cheshire opposite Grimshaw Lane, for almost 130 years.

The business was started by John Thomas Barrow who was born in 1856. He was the first Chief of the Bollington Fire Brigade and won medals for long service. He was joined in the butchers by his eldest son Tom.

In those days deliveries were made by horse and trap; the horse was named Bob, which you can see in a photo above.

The shop had its own abattoir in the yard behind, poultry was kept on what is now the car park with cattle grazing in a field which is now Ashbrook Road, Bollington.

Tom was succeeded by his eldest sons John and Reg and the business became Barrow’s Brothers.

During the Second World War, meat was rationed and customers had to be registered with the butcher to receive their meagre allowance of meat. These were very difficult times and a little meat had to go a long way.

In 1962 Reg’s elder son John joined the business and was later assisted by his wife Rita. Their elder son Richard, who is now the present owner, was interested in the shop from a very early age and joined on leaving school when the business became Barrow’s Butchers.

Richard now runs the shop alongside his son Sam who has become the sixth generation of butchers. 

Joining in the family business is Harvey, Richard’s nephew and Sam’s cousin.  Harvey is currently studying an Apprenticeship to become a master butcher like Sam. 

We also have another 2 highly skilled butchers, allowing us to boast over 100 years’ butchery experience between us all.

The abattoir has now been converted into a preparation area where sausages, burgers, etc., are made. Barrow’s pride themselves on using only the finest quality local produce, as our customers will testify.

May we thank them for their loyal support and assure them of our best service for many years to come.

We have won awards for our quality meat the latest being awarded supplier of the year for Cheshire East catering when supplying local Primary Schools.
