About the archive

The Addingham Photo Archive is a collection of photos and scanned documents about the village of Addingham in West Yorkshire.

This material has been collected over many years with the earliest by local photographer and historian Hilda Holmes, followed by Kate Mason and others. Many of the more recent items are by Don Barrett. There are now over 7,000 of the more interesting items in this published archive but double that number in the whole collection. If you have a particular interest or are researching an Addingham place, person or subject you may request access to ALL the relevant files. Please contact the group at addinghamheritagegroup@gmail.com. to request access.
