West Burton, or Burton cum Walden, nestling below Penhill in the secluded valley of Walden, away from the busy through roads is a haven of tranquility. With its broad expanse of Village Green, one of the largest in England, there is ample space for many activities or none - just relaxing on the seats scattered around the Green or on the steps of the Market Cross, a focal point for parents, with children on the swings or playing ball games on the Green.

Surrounding the Green are the dwellings and other buildings of West Burton the pub,the Fox and Hounds the school, village hall and chapel as well as the village store , the butcher, antiques shop,  and, of course, The Cat Pottery: Moorside Cats. Just down from the Cat Pottery, less than 150 paces or a couple of minutes, but quite hidden from view is the Waterfall and Walden Beck with its pools and rocks ideal for swimming, paddling or just idling about. It is now signposted, thanks to J.M.W.  Turner's epic landscape drawings of the waterfalls of  "Upper Wedneslydale" (sic). It's here that the salmon are leaping  since Monday  9 Oct 2017.  It's that time of year  OCTOBER 2018 for the SALMON but the river is low and we need rain before they will appear.

This part of Wensleydale confirms a recent poll  that North Yorkshire is the most beautiful county in England. It certainly does warrant a visit or better still a few days stay when you can explore the many walks starting from the village
