Our new build journey.

Barton AC’s new premises opened in 2016, after a huge amount work and support from many people.

Club members gave around 78,000 volunteer hours to the ‘Save Barton AC’ campaign and this dedication, alongside support from partners in sport and the community helped secure our club’s future.

Here is the story of our incredible journey – from Shacklady’s Barn in 1953, to our custom built premises on Franklin Street, Eccles.
