This site is the Addingham village information site for everything that you need or want to know about our lovely, historic village, whether you are a resident or visitor to the area.

Addingham is in West Yorkshire in the North of England three miles south of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Addingham is a former textile mill village which expanded rapidly at the end of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century from being a small farming community to become a busy textile manufacturing centre with five mills, five churches and five pubs - four of the churches and the five pubs are still going strong today but the textile industry is no more.

Addingham is in the valley of the River Wharfe with Rombald's Moor rising to the south and Beamsley Beacon in the north providing excellent walking country. See the new book 'Walks Around Addingham' HERE for details of walks to tempt you into your walking boots.

The aim of the site is to 'do what it says on the tin' - to be a one-stop shop for information about the village, its history and its surroundings.
We hope that you will be able to find whatever you want to know about Addingham and what there is to do in or around Addingham village. There is a search box at the top of each page to find things quickly but if you can't find what you want there, or if you have any comments or suggestions, please contact the webmaster.

Thanks for looking around
