Litton is a village and civil parish in the Craven district of North Yorkshire, England that lies further up Littondale than Arncliffe. A little further up the dale is the small hamlet of Halton Gill. From Litton there are walks over the fells to the east to Buckden in Wharfedale and up Pen-y-ghent via Plover Hill to the west. From Halton Gill there is a bridle path over the Horse Head Pass to the east to Yockenthwaite in Langstrothdale. This path was used by the priest from Hubberholme to reach the small chapel in Halton Gill.
The centre of the village is an old public house, the Queens Arms, that dates back to the 17th century. Associated with the Queens Arms since 2003 is the Litton Brewery that brews Litton Ale.
