Barnby Dun (or, originally, Barnby upon Don) was a village to the northeast of Doncaster included in Doncaster Rural District from the introduction of rural districts in 1894 until it was merged with the neighbouring parish of Kirk Sandall in 1921 to become Barnby Dun with Kirk Sandall. The new parish also included the parish of Edenthorpe. The combined civil parish is now located in the Metropolitan Borough of Doncaster in South Yorkshire, England.

These maps all blow up to a scale that will illustrate small villages and large farms or estates.
