Welcome to Addingham Village

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

Nursery Rhymes applied for the ‘Millie’s Mark’ accreditation 12 months ago now. Millie’s Mark is a legacy to inspire excellence in Paediatric First Aid and was set up by parents of a baby who choked and died at a Nursery in Manchester. To achieve Millie’s Mark all members of staff who come into contact with the children must be First Aid trained, risk assessments and audit tools must be carried out and spot checks are made by Millie’s Mark representatives to ensure we are continuing to provide the high standard in First Aid.
We are very pleased to announce that we have now gained the award from Millie’s Mark after a successful inspection; providing all the criteria needed and all staff trained to the correct standards approved by the panel. We’re extremely proud to achieve such an award as there are only two other settings in this area that have gained accreditation like this.

Footpath Problems
(1) The footpath from Big Meadow Drive to the 'Fairy Dell' near the nature reserve is blocked by a fallen tree. The Council have been informed.
(2) The suspension bridge across the river to Nesfield is closed and will not re-open until 1 April next year. This is most annoying because it makes the other side of the river inaccessible and spoils some good walks, including Walks 2 & 3 in 'Walks Around Addingham' book.
It has been suggested that we need someone to reinstate the ferry that crossed here before the old bridge was built in 1896 - this 1890 map from the archive shows it in operation.
