Barnack is a pretty village in Cambridgeshire, formerly the Soke of Peterborough in Northamptonshire, 3 miles from Stamford.

St. John the Baptist Church has an Anglo Saxon tower, with long and short work, and is surmounted by one of England`s earliest spires.

The Hills and Holes nature reserve is an area of grassy knolls, which from Roman times was the quarry from which Barnack stone was extracted. This famous stone built the cathedrals at Ely and Peterborough, and some colleges at Cambridge.

The author Charles Kingsley was born in The Old Rectory, now known as Kingsley House.

In the village there is a tower mill.
