Burton is a small village in the unitary authority of Cheshire West and Chester and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England. In the 2001 Census, the village had a population of 50. Burton is part of the Duddon civil parish.
The village is about 2 miles (3.2 km) south east of Tarvin and 3 miles (4.8 km) west of Tarporley. The village lies on Burton Road, with the villages of Duddon to the north and Hoofield to the south. The River Gowy passes approximately 1 mile (1.6 km) to the south west of Burton.
Until 1 April 2015, Burton was a civil parish. Although classified as a civil parish, it had neither a parish council nor a parish meeting, and, consequently, the duties that would normally be performed by these bodies were the responsibility of Cheshire West and Chester Council.
From 1 April 2015, Burton parish was merged with Duddon parish to create a new, larger, Duddon parish.
