West Witton is a small village in Wensleydale in the Yorkshire Dales.

The village is probably best known for the "Burning of Old Bartle", a tradition which sees locals burning an effigy of "Old Bartle" - otherwise known as "Owd Bartle - in a "Wicker Man" style ceremony which usually takes place on the Saturday closest to St. Bartholomew's Day in August.
