St Michael & All Angels

This Grade II* listed church dates from the early 16th century with much reused early medieval stonework from a nearby 9th century church destroyed by the River Eden.

Addingham, Cumbria


CA10 1DU

The church of St Michael and All Angels at Addingham is situated about a mile south of the village of Glassonbury. Although Addingham is an Anglo-Saxon settlement, there hasn’t been a village here since the 14th Century, when the River Eden changed its course and washed the village away.

Inside the church are several stained glass windows, including a modern one by SM Scott, depicting St Michael and the dragon, inserted in 1973 as a memorial to Frederick and Thomas Westgarth, and their wives.
