Dalton is a village and civil parish in North Yorkshire in England, about six miles northwest of Richmond and about five miles southeast of Barnard Castle within the council district of Richmondshire and close to the A66 transpennine trunk road. It was listed in the Domesday book. The Dalton parish boundary includes the village itself as well the houses at Dalton Heights (off the road to Newsham) plus numerous surrounding farms. The population of the parish was 147 according to the 2001 census.
Dalton is founded on a farming community, both arable and stock, and nestles on a stream or beck which is a tributary of the River Swale. The Dalton & Gayles Village Hall, which is shared with the neighbouring village of Gayles, is located in Dalton; there is also a Church of England church, St James's, built in 1897.
