The small village of Burneside is on the River Kent and marks the route of the Dales Way walk which runs for 78 miles from Ilkley in West Yorkshire to Bowness-on-Windermere in Cumbria. The route follows mostly riverside paths and passes through the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the gentle foothills of southern Lakeland to the shore of England’s grandest lake.
The village is home to the James Cropper PLC paper mill which has been making and selling paper since 1845. The paper mill is only a 5 minute walk from the station. The village also has a grocery store, pub, bakery and chip shop. Visit St. Oswald’s church which dates from 1647 or Burneside Hall with a fine, 14th century pele tower.
