Welcome to Caton-with-Littledale
The Parish Council of Caton-with-Littledale welcomes you to our village website. For visitors to the area, there is a wealth of information about things to do, places to eat & drink and a listing of local accommodation.
The parish is set in the beautiful Lower Lune Valley on the A683 just 10 minutes from the M6 and only 4½ miles from Lancaster. The landscape ranges from hills and becks to the flat flood plain of the River Lune. The choice of terrain makes for varied walks and cycle rides where birds and wildlife abound.
The parish comprises of bustling Caton, set on the A683 with its shops, pubs and garage. Brookhouse, where the picturesque parish church resides, is in a quieter setting. Around the church and the Black Bull pub are narrow streets and old cottages - there's even a plague stone set in the bridge over Bull Beck.
The outlaying areas of the parish are Caton Green, set on a prominent rise with views over the valley, and Littledale set in a beautiful landscape of hills and becks which are some of the most stunning in Lancashire.
