“I remember when ……”
A display of images from the Addingham Photo Archive to stimulate conversations about our local history by people who live in Addingham.
We know there are some interesting stories about people and events and we’d love you to share your memories of the village, its people and its memorable events and help the Heritage Group to fill in the gaps in their knowledge - particularly about some of the images that they don’t have much information about.
Anyone is welcome, you don’t have to live in the village.
The display is on through March in the Hub above the Library on Main Street, Addingham (LS29 0NS) and is open every morning from
9.00 until 12.00 except Friday when it’s open from 1.45 until 4.45pm
The Addingham Photo Archive is online - why not have a look at the thousands of photos and videos of Addingham which can now be seen at photoarchive.addingham.info or via our History & Books page
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 (see photo) providing excellent walking country. See our 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
