Welcome to Burton-in-Lonsdale nestling on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, England. Burton has been called both "the first and last village in Yorkshire", tucked into the hillside above the River Greta, and at the cusp of the county boundaries of both Lancashire and Cumbria. Between 1670 and 1944 Burton was home to a total of 13 potteries and known locally as 'Black Burton' due to the smoke from the kilns. Today the village is home to over 630 residents and holiday makers.
ANNUAL PARISH MEETING
24th June 19:30 in the Village Hall
This is where all the organisations in the Village tell us what they have been doing for the last 24 months
(no meeting last year!). It is always interesting and worth going along.
BURTON VILLAGE HALL - PROPOSED EXTENSION
After a lot of work has gone into this, with several different layouts, we now have a final plan.
The reason for the extension is principally to remove the old toilets, create new ones at the front of the buliding and, at the same time, to improve the space for the storage of equipment.
As you can see, the front wall creates space for a small bus shelter.
And, we may want to take the opportunity for some refurbishment of the inside of the hall.
Please have a look at the plans in the Burtonian and let us have your views, we do want to move on with this and have more events in the Hall as we come out of lockdown.
The Village Shop now has a system for only letting three customers in at once.
Hand sanitiser is there to be used before entering and face coverings must be worn in the shop.
The shop is still taking orders for delivery to customers who need it.
CURRENT OPENING HOURS:
Monday to Friday 7am to 5pm // Sat 7am – 1pm // Sun 8am to 1pm
