Local Area 
The fellwalkers writer, Alfred Wainwright, at one time considered living here and it was undoubtedly one of his favoured villages. In his book, Westmorland's Heritage, he writes 'Orton is one of the loveliest of Westmorland's villages. A delightful rural settlement built around a central green with two streams crossed by many footbridges and having numerous venerable buildings and a fine church on a hill overlooking tranquil countryside'.

The surrounding countryside is indeed very beautiful and unusual in having large tracts of unfenced land providing a huge variety of interesting walks. This has recently been recognised and Orton Parish included in The Dales National Park.
