Where we are
Caton is a small village, near Lancaster, in the North West of the UK. It is
nestled in the Lune Valley, with the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, called
the 'Bowland Fells' as it's immediate background.
A little further on the horizon are the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake
District. All within easy travelling distance.
Caton Gala takes place on the Sports Field behind the 'Station' Pub. There is
ample free parking available in the village but please bear in mind that this is
a popular event and you may have to walk a little distance from the car to the
field. Caton is on the main bus route from Lancaster to Ingleton. We are also easily reached by
bicycle from Lancaster following the Millennium Park Cycle Route.
