Barton in the Beans is a hamlet in the Hinckley and Bosworth District of Leicestershire, England, and forms part of the Shackerstone civil parish. The link with Shackerstone only began in 1935. Before Barton in the Beans was made a civil parish in 1866 it was part of Nailstone parish.
There are no shops or pubs here, only a Baptist Church and a post box. It was in the 18th century an important centre for the Baptist Church and the minister at Barton was the notable clockmaker Samuel Deacon (1746-1816). The population circa 1830 was 177.
One of the earliest mentions of this place is in the Domesday Book (1086) where it is listed amongst the lands given to Hugh de Grandmesnil by the King (the land required half a plough and there were 2 acres (8,100 m2) of meadow). During the Middle Ages the land passed through many hands including several members of the family of Hastings.
A History of Britain through Time provides the following description of Barton in the Beans from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:
- "BARTON-IN-THE-BEANS, a township in Market-Bosworth [registration] district, Leicester; chiefly in Nailstone parish, but partly also in Market-Bosworth and Shackerstone parishes, 2 miles N of Market-Bosworth. Acres, 820. Real property: £1,712. Population: 159. Houses: 39."
