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 


Other than a new issue of the Burtonian due out next week, there is very little to announce.  As you will see from the calendar on the next page, almost everything is cancelled for the immediate future.


This is a message from the Village Shop  .... 


In these uncertain times, we are taking every measure possible to prevent the spread of Coronavirus/Covid-19.

We are open for business as usual, and for anyone in and around Burton who requires shopping delivered, we are offering our usual delivery service, and have many volunteers to help us with this if needed, so please don't hesitate to give us a call on 015242 63397, and we will be happy to help, however small the order.

 We would also ask if anyone is thinking of visiting the shop feels unwell, and there is a chance that it could be the coronavirus, then could they please refrain from doing so, as we have many staff and volunteers who would be high risk if they contracted the virus.

We will keep the shop fully stocked, as long as the stock is available to us, but we apologise in advance if we have to restrict some items to 1 per customer, as with all the panic buying, we are trying to give everyone chance to do their shopping, and we do have quite a few elderly customers who also rely on us for their weekly shop. 

We Thank You all for your continued custom and Wish you All the Best over the coming months.


Monday to Friday 7am to 5pm
Sat 7am – 1pm
Sun 8am to 1pm
