Skelton is a small village and civil parish about 7 miles (11 km) north west of Penrith in the English county of Cumbria. It is on the former route of the B5305 road, which is now about 1 mile (1.6 km) to the north.
Skelton Agricultural Show is one of the largest in Cumbria and takes place on the first Saturday in July at Hutton-in-the-Forest.
In 1934 the parish absorbed the former civil parishes of Hutton-in-the-Forest; and Middlesceugh and Braithwaite; plus part of Dalston.
Hutton-in-the-Forest included New Rent, Hutton End and Hutton Row and was bordered on the east by Hesket-in-the-Forest. "Forest" refers to the ancient royal hunting ground of Inglewood Forest which included all of the present day Skelton.
