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.
LOCKDOWN NEWS ....
Have a look at the NEW page, some photos taken around the village on the VE75 Bank Holiday. And one video by Andy Ive about it.
There are more new pictures added to the Lockdown Gallery as well
Virtual Open Gardens. To brighten us up, a number of residents have taken pictures (and two short videos) of their gardens, no doubt after working on them non-stop during the lockdown in such good weather as we have been having. Do have a look at the next page, the Lockdown Gallery.
Don't forget that the Village Shop has new opening hours at present (see below) and that there is a system for only letting three customers in at once. Also that they are taking orders for delivery to customers who need it. The service weems to be working well.

Also that the Village Pub, the Punchbowl is doing takeaway meals every Thursday, Friday & Saturday; from 5-30pm - 7-30pm.
