St. Peters Church Addingham

St Peter’s is an ancient and living church serving the village of Addingham. Christians have worshipped on this site for over 1100 years. The building, set amid an open field, has a nave roof, arcade and chancel dating from the 15th century with a gallery of 1756.

The clock was made by William Cryer of Carleton near Skipton around 1830.

Addingham (formerly Haddincham c.972, Odingehem 1086) is a village and civil parish in the English county of West Yorkshire. It is situated on the A65, 3 miles (5 km) west of Ilkley, 15 miles (24 km) north west of Bradford and around 17 miles (27 km) north west of Leeds. It is located in the valley of the River Wharfe and is only 3 miles (5 km) from the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The name is thought to mean "homestead associated with a man called Adda", although in the Domesday Book, the village was referred to as "Ediham", which may have referred to Earl Edwin of Bolton Abbey. The 2001 census numbered Addingham's population at 3,599.
