Welcome to 


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.

Please look at the "Coming Events"page for a run down on what is happening in Burton and the surrounding area.  Many of the events will be covered in more detail in the Burtonian
