Addingham
West Yorkshire
Unusually the church stands away from the centre of the village on a site above the river Wharfe where human remains have been found dating back over a thousand years. Along and around its main street can be found weavers cottages and a former cloth hall where handloom weavers brought their cloth to sell. Former mills have been turned into apartments and with the by-pass taking most of the traffic out of the village, it makes a wonderful place to visit on the way to Ilkley, Skipton or Bolton Abbey.

St Peter's Church
Church Street, Addingham LS29 0QP

When the Vikings invaded in AD 867, the then Archbishop of York, Wulfhere, took refuge in Addingham. He probably stayed close to where St Peter's church is today. In 1990, when they came to build an extension to the Church Hall, a Saxon burial ground, with around 80 graves, was uncovered. In the church, built in stone in the 15th century, can be seen a Saxon preaching cross. Located down an easy-to-miss track between some houses - although the church sits in a large open field!
