Barlow is a small village located in North Yorkshire, near Selby, England.

Barlow is an essentially rural village, situated about three miles from the town of Selby and from the motorway network.

The village's two nature reserves offer a network of paths and bridleways for horse riding and woodland walks.

Barlow has around 200 houses spread mainly along the main street; most of them date from the 1960s and later. There are no shops in the village, although there is a licensed social club.

The village was the site of an airship production factory in the early part of the 20th century and later a munitions depot. Much of the land on which both of these were sited now lies under the ash tip of the nearby Drax power station.
