Thornton-in-Craven is a village and civil parish in the Craven district of North Yorkshire. The Pennine Way passes through the village, as does the A56 road which gives direct routes to Manchester which is approximately 45 minutes by car. The village has a church and a primary school. Near the medieval church to the west of the village is a holy well, dating from Saxon times and now covered by an octagonal structure completed in 1764 by the rector. The village playing field, at the bottom of Boothbridge Lane, is home to the first and second XI of Thornton in Craven Cricket Club who compete in different divisions of the Craven League. The village is close to the town of Barnoldswick, with a variety of shops, restaurants, businesses and bus routes to Manchester and beyond and with the bustling market town of Skipton just 10 minutes by car. Manchester can be reached within 1 hour by car or by train (from Colne and Clitheroe) and the M6 within 30 minutes or so. Thornton-in Craven is on a main bus route running between Burnley and Skipton.
