The "Kirk" Of 'Burton

The ancient village of Kirkburton still preserves much rural charm. It is another locality of our area mentioned in William the Conqueror's Domesday Book. Kirkburton was, in fact, in that part of the North Country which was devastated by the Normans in 1069. The "Kirk" of Burton goes back to the thirteenth century. All Hallows' ranks high among the village churches of Yorkshire. It contains much Early English work and has a commanding position on high ground.
