Barrowton is a walled town in The North, the largest community in the North after White Harbor. The town lies in the Barrowlands, an area of broad rolling plains with howling winds, and is build east of the confluence of two rivers which flow south to the Saltspear. Barrowton's name is attributed is centered around the large hill Great Barrow, on which was built the Dustins' castle, Barrow Hall. The town itself is wooden and has broad straight streets. House Stout of Goldgrass has a keep near the eastern gate of Barrowton, but House Dustin is the major house of the area, claiming to have descended from the First King of the First Men and the Barrow Kings of the barrowlands. House Dustin blazon their shield with two rusted longaxes with black shafts crossed, a black crown between their points, on yellow.
Barrowton was built in January 2014, led by barkus and carcinogenius. The current Barrowton replaced a very early version.
Barrowton was inspired by Medieval Nordic architecture and concept art, similar to many builds in the North, specifically Dragonsreach Keep. The town and Barrow Hall have often been compared to the architecture of Skyrim and also Edoras from Lord of the Rings, which both incorporate elements of fantasy as well as realistic Nordic architecture.
Barrowton was featured in Episode 4 of WesterosCraft Walks. DutchGuard begins outside the town, explores various buildings, including the massive wooden Barrow Hall of House Dustin.
