East and West Morton

Coordinates: East Morton is a small village which lies 1 mile north of Bingley and 3 miles south-east of Keighley, in the county of West Yorkshire, England. The village of East Morton was mentioned in the Domesday Book. The parish of Morton was formally created by an act of Parliament in 1846. West Morton remains largely a collection of farmhouses and cottages spread over a wide area, and sits at the southern foot of Rombalds Moor.
East Morton has a Public House called the Busfeild Arms named after the local Busfeild family who lived in the area in the 19th Century, hence the apparent misspelling of the name. There is also a Church of England Primary School and St. Luke's church dating back to only 1851, when it was consecrated for worship.
East Morton has grown substantially in recent years, with several major housing developments, including 'Waterside Fold' which adjoins the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. The village also incorporates a golf course called Fardew and a recreational playground (with swings).
