Walton is a village in the north-east of Cumbria, 3 miles by road north of the market town of Brampton.
Walton has a church and a village hall, formerly the village school, but no shop.
During the summer months the village hall / reading room is open as a tea room.
The village hall is also used as a post office on Monday and Wednesday mornings (09:00 - 12:00).
When the village hall is open there is access to the toilets.
More information can be found on the Walton Parish Council website
Unfortunately, the Centurion pub is no longer open. There is a public house which serves meals in Irthington about 2½ miles to the south-west; Brampton has several pubs, eating places and take-away food outlets.

The village is sited close to the wall built as the northern frontier to Roman Britain following a visit by the emperor Hadrian in the 2nd century AD.
A National Trail, Hadrian's Wall Path, opened in May 2003.
Though the sections nearest to Walton have been covered to protect them, impressive lengths of Hadrian's Wall and milecastles can be seen on the road between Banks and Birdoswald about 5 miles to the east from Walton.
There is a Visitor Centre and excavations of a Roman fort at Birdoswald.
Three miles east from Walton is Lanercost Priory, built by Augustinian Canons in 1166. The restored nave of the church has stained glass by William Morris and Burne-Jones.
