Welcome to the Addingham Village information website
Addingham is in West Yorkshire in the North of England three miles south of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
Our aim 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, in conjunction with our sister site www.ilkley.org which covers the Ilkley area (three miles east of Addingham).
We hope that you will be able to find whatever you want to know about Addingham and what there is to do here, whether you are a resident, visitor or just looking for somewhere interesting. If you can't find it (using the Search bar at the top) please
Using the menu on the left (and the sub-menus which will appear below it) you will find a vast store of information about the following, and more:-
(a) events in the village and the organisations behind them.
(b) local businesses and places to eat, drink or stay.
(c) the history of Addingham and of the Schools.
(d) places around for day trips or walks.
There is a search box at the top of each page to find things quickly.
Thanks for looking around - please let us have your comments and suggestions for further improvements.
