  • Barrow-in-Furness (/ˈbæroʊ ɪn ˈfɜːrnəs/ BA-roh in FUR-nəs; commonly known as Barrow) is a town and borough in Cumbria, North West England. Historically part of Lancashire, it was incorporated as a municipal borough in 1867 and merged with adjacent districts in 1974 to form the Borough of Barrow-in-Furness. At the tip of the Furness peninsula, close to the Lake District, it is bordered by Morecambe Bay, the Duddon Estuary and the Irish Sea. In 2011, Barrow's population was 57,000, the second largest urban area in Cumbria after Carlisle. Natives of Barrow, as well as the local dialect, are known as Barrovian. In the Middle Ages, Barrow was a small hamlet with Furness Abbey, on the outskirts of the modern-day town, controlling the local economy before its dissolution in 1537. The iron prospector Henry Schneider arrived in Furness in 1839 and, with other investors, opened the Furness Railway in 1846 to transport iron ore and slate from local mines to the coast. Further hematite deposits were discovered, of sufficient size to develop factories for smelting and exporting steel. By the late 19th century, the Barrow Hematite Steel Company-owned steelworks was the world's largest. Barrow's location and the availability of steel allowed the town to develop into a significant producer of naval vessels, a shift that was accelerated during World War I and the local yard's specialisation in submarines. The original iron- and steel-making enterprises closed down after World War II, leaving Vickers shipyard as Barrow's main industry and employer. Several Royal Navy flagships, the vast majority of its nuclear submarines as well as numerous ocean liners and oil tankers were manufactured at the facility. The end of the Cold War and subsequent decrease in military spending saw high unemployment in the town through lack of contracts; despite this, the BAE Systems shipyard remains operational as the UK's largest by workforce and is undergoing a major expansion associated with the Successor-class submarine programme. Today Barrow is a hub for energy generation and handling. Offshore wind farms form one of the highest concentrations of turbines in the world. (en)
  • Barrow-in-Furness es una ciudad del condado de Cumbria, en noroeste Inglaterra (Reino Unido). Su población en 2001 era de 71.980 habitantes. Barrow-in-Furness o simplemente Barrow, como es conocido popularmente, es una ciudad costera, situada en un extremo de la península de Furness, entre Morecambe Bay, el estuario de Duddon y el mar de Irlanda. Barrow comenzó a crecer rápidamente en la década de 1840 y en menos de medio siglo pasó de ser una pequeña aldea a convertirse en una ciudad relativamente grande. Este desarrollo tan vertiginoso se debió al desarrollo de la Compañía de Ferrocarril de Furness, pero fue sobre todo consecuencia de que, hacia finales siglo XIX, se instaló en la ciudad una enorme acerería. De hecho, todavía en la actualidad sigue siendo un importante centro astillero. (es)
  • Barrow-in-Furness ist eine Stadt in der Grafschaft Cumbria im Nordwesten Englands. Sie ist der Hauptort des Borough of Barrow-in-Furness und zählt rund 71.980 Einwohner (2001). Die Hafenstadt, die früher zur Grafschaft Lancashire gehörte, zählt zu den bedeutenden Industriezentren des Vereinigten Königreiches. Um 1850 war Barrow-in-Furness noch ein kleines Dorf und wuchs innerhalb von 20 Jahren um ein Vielfaches. Es besaß zeitweise das größte Stahlwerk der Welt und entwickelte sich zu einem Zentrum des Schiffbaus. Der Hafen von Barrow ist deswegen auch heute noch von großer Bedeutung. Die Stadt liegt an der Morecambe Bay gegenüber von Walney Island. Die Stadt ist mit der vorgelagerten Insel durch die Jubilee Bridge verbunden, einer Klappbrücke. Im Nordosten liegt der Lake District. (de)

  • Barrow-in-Furness o, più semplicemente Barrow (ca. 60.000 ab.) è una città del Regno Unito nella contea inglese della Cumbria, sulla penisola di Furness, della quale è il centro abitato più popoloso. Affacciata sul mar d’Irlanda, è situata circa 50 km a nord di Blackpool. La città appartenne, fino al 1974, alla contea storica del Lancashire. Barrow è cresciuta rapidamente intorno a un piccolo villaggio nato intorno al 1840, per raggiungere le dimensioni attuali in capo a circa mezzo secolo. Tra i motori dello sviluppo, si annoverano la presenza della ferrovia (la Furness Railway Company) e, verso la fine del XIX secolo la nascita di un'importante industria siderurgica. Tuttora attiva, è l'industria navale: a Barrow si trova il più grande cantiere navale del Regno Unito, il quale è anche l'unico deputato alla costruzione di sommergibili. (it)

  • Barrow-in-Furness, dikwijls kortweg Barrow genoemd, is een stad in Noordwest-Engeland, gelegen op het schiereiland Furness aan de noordwestelijke punt van Morecambe Bay, en vormt de hoofdplaats van het gelijknamige district Barrow-in-Furness. Dit district wordt sedert 1974 bestuurlijk gezien tot Cumbria gerekend, maar lag van oudsher in het historische graafschap Lancashire, waarvan de grens nooit werd aangepast. Barrow kan dus een grensstad tussen twee graafschappen genoemd worden. De stad is vooral bekend om de scheepswerf van BAE Systems op Barroweiland, die een zeer belangrijke bron van werkgelegenheid is en zich begin 21ste eeuw op het vervaardigen van nucleaire duikboten toelegt. De stad Barrow-in-Furness is relatief jong en kwam eerst in de late 19de eeuw tot volle ontwikkeling. Ze draagt qua stadsplanning een sterk Victoriaans stempel, met het stadhuis van Barrow-in-Furness uit 1885 als voornaamste blikvanger. Inwoners van Barrow worden Barrovianen (Barrovians) genoemd.

  • Ба́рроу-ин-Фе́рнесс (англ. Barrow-in-Furness) — промышленный и портовый город в Англии, в графстве Камбрия, административный центр района Барроу-ин-Фарнесс. Город расположен примерно в 350 км к северо-западу от Лондона и в 97 км от границы с Шотландией. До XIX века Барроу-ин-Фернесс был небольшой рыбацкой деревней, но в результате промышленной революции в Англии и строительства железной дороги Барроу-ин-Фернесс стал активно развиваться и использовался для экспорта стали. Естественная гавань, которой обладал быстро развивающийся город, позволила построить отличный порт и судоверфи. Верфи Барроу-ин-Фёрнесс приобрели специализацию по строительству военных кораблей, с 1960-х на верфях больше строятся атомные подводные лодки. После окончания холодной войны, в связи с уменьшением заказов от королевских ВМС, город пережил высокий уровень безработицы. (ru)
