A Walk around Addingham Village to View a Selection of the Blue Plaques


The walk began at the Band ‘ole where a montage of images displayed its transformation from buildings dated 1686, which were used as the Addingham Poor House and subsequently as a practice venue for the village brass band, until 2007 they were transformed and extended to their current use as a small holding.
