Hayton is a small village and civil parish in Cumbria, England, roughly 8 miles (13 km) east of Carlisle, and 10 miles (16 km) from the England/Scotland border. The population of the parish taken at the 2011 census was 2,222.[1]

The place name Hayton means hay farm and refers to the former farming in the area. There is a separate settlement named Hayton within Cumbria near Aspatria. St. Mary Magdalene Church was built in 1780. In the church are a number of memorials to the Graham family of Edmond Castle. Edmond Castle, a mile from the village, is thought to date from earlier than the 17th century.[2][3] The nearby Toppin Castle farmhouse is a nineteenth-century imitation tower house.
