Dalton is a hamlet in the civil parish of Burton in Kendal, Cumbria, England. Until 1894 it was in Lancashire, but was transferred to Westmorland "in accordance with the unanimous desire of the inhabitants".[1]

Dalton is located about a mile east of Burton-in-Kendal and gives its name to Dalton Crags and Dalton Hall.

Remains of medieval settlements in the area have been recorded by archaeologists, and "Dalton medieval village and parts of its associated medieval open field system centred 620m ENE of Dalton Hall" is listed as a scheduled monument.[2][3]

Dalton Old Hall farmhouse is a grade II listed building.[4]
