Welcome to The Ropewalk Website.
The Ropewalk is a regionally acclaimed centre for the arts housing four gallery spaces, a sculpture garden, coffee shop and facilities for printmaking and room hire.
Ropery Hall is small scale venue for film, theatre, comedy and music.
The centre is situated slightly to the east of the Humber Bridge, on the southern bank of the River Humber. Stretching out towards the bank, at almost a quarter of a mile long, The Ropewalk was initially part of a rope making factory; opening in 1767, the factory eventually closed in 1989.

A Moment in Time
This new publication, now available in the Craft Gallery, is a facsimile of a booklet produced by the Barton Upon Humber (south) Townswomen’s Guild in 1957. Produced by Barton Civic Society, it is a survey of the town at a point in time, which, for readers today provides a fascinating snapshot of life in Barton over sixty years ago.
