English: Walton is a village and civil parish in the county of West Yorkshire, England, near Wakefield. It has a population of 3,377. It is on the Barnsley Canal and includes Walton Hall, the home of Charles Waterton, the man who made Walton Hall into the first nature reserve in the country. It also has a large protected reserve nearby, formerly a colliery, which has now been transformed into a popular wildlife destination, where entry is free and which people can walk round. Also in Walton is the recent construction of a new Junior and Infants School, replacing the two schools that have now been demolished. In addition, there is a park, a tennis club, rugby pitch, and working men's club. Although a fairly large village in its own right, it has since almost joined with nearby Sandal, which, in turn, runs into Wakefield.
