 About Airton
Airton is a beautiful village in the limestone country of Upper Airedale. On the surrounding stone-walled hillsides, notice the terraces, which show that farming has gone on here for thousands of years. The PW comes to Airton along a beautiful riverside walk through meadows. Since it was recorded in the Domesday Book, Airton has been a Quaker village, a mill village and a farming village. The friends Meeting House, and mill have been converted in flats. On the village green there is the 17th Squatters' House. Homeless people could apply to the Quarter Sessions for permission to build a house on common land. If they could make the framework of their house within 24 hours they were given squatters' rights, but every night the locals made sure any new attempt was pulled down. History does not record how the Squatters's House managed to survive.

The village also boasts the famous Town End Farm shop and cafe, recently featured in the 'Top of the Shop' TV show. The Barn forms part of the premises of the Airton Friends Meeting House: a beautifully conserved 17th century Grade II listed building and one of the oldest Quaker Meeting Houses in existence. The 'Friend in Residence' (the volunteer warden) is always happy to show guests around and talk about the history of this remarkable building. The Barn has 6 beds but can accommodate 12 on floor mattresses
