Litton is a village in the Derbyshire Peak District of England. It is one mile from Tideswell and six miles from Bakewell.[1]

The locals will tell you "It's 1000 feet up - minus a boy scout". It has a village hall, a village shop, a small primary school, a post office run by a co-operative of villagers and the Red Lion pub. There are two churches, one at the east end of the village, and one at the west, at the outskirts of the village on the road to Tideswell, the next village along.

Litton has one of the Derbyshire well dressings that take place each summer. The display is set on a base of moist clay and the patterns formed from petals, seeds, mosses and lichens. Each village has its own distinctive style of decoration.
