Last week’s guest church, as identified by Jennifer Pratt, is St Peter’s, Addingham.

St Peter’s is part of the Leeds Anglican Diocese. According to the church website, Christians have worshipped on the site for more than 1,100 years.

The building, set in an open field, has a nave roof, arcade and chancel dating from the 15th century with a gallery built in 1756.

It is thought, says the website, that worship in the 8th or 9th centuries may have taken place around an Anglo-Saxon cross, the shaft of which survives and can still be seen in the church. It is also possible that there was a wooden church at the site, although nothing remains today.

The earliest stone church probably dates from around 1155. In 1189, the first priest in Addingham is recorded as simply ‘Thomas the parson’. By then, Addingham had become part of the estate of the Vavasour family, who remained patrons of the church until after the reformation and whose crest is to be seen carved in wood and stone within the church.

The website continues that little of the Norman church remains, just a few stones that commonly have been re-used in later re-buildings.

Much of the inside of St Peter’s dates from Tudor times - around the 1520s or 1530s and includes the chancel arch, the arcade and the roof timbers in the nave and north aisle. By the middle of the 18th century, the church was in need of repair, and in 1753, plans were drawn up to demolish the Tudor church and rebuild. Instead, a more modest repair was undertaken by local craftsmen.

The south wall was rebuilt, a west gallery was constructed inside, and the tower was added. The date of 1757, together with the names of the church wardens, can be seen carved in the stone above the clock. The total cost came to £160.8s.4d.
