Barnstone

BARNSTONE, a chapelry, in the parish of Langar, union and N. division of the wapentake of Bingham, S. division of the county of Nottingham, 1 mile (N. E.) from Langar; containing 136 inhabitants. It comprises 1386 acres of land. The village occupies an eminence commanding an extensive view of the vale of Belvoir. The chapel is a small building with a short tower, and is supposed to be the remains of, or rather to have replaced, the ancient chapel of St. Atheburga or St. Aubrey, which, Thoroton says, stood in the fields of Langar.

Transcribed from A Topographical Dictionary of England, by Samuel Lewis, 7th edition, published in 1848.
