Barloc of Norbury was a Dark Ages Catholic saint and hermit,[1] from Anglo-Saxon England.

Very little is known of the life of this saint. His name indicates he might have been Celtic. He is known to history mainly through the hagiography of the Secgan Manuscript;[2] he also occurs in a litany in the Tanner MS. 169 of the Bodleian Library, Oxford.[3]

He was venerated at St Werburgh's, Chester and his feast day is on 10 September.
