St Cuthbert

The small Dales town of Pateley Bridge is the main centre of Upper Nidderdale and hosts the last of the traditional agricultural shows of the year, the ‘Nidderdale Show.’

New Church Street
Pateley Bridge

The town is also the start and finish point of the Nidderdale Way, a 53 mile circular route that loops around the stunning scenery of the Nidd Valley. 

St Cuthbert’s church is an early 19th century building which was built to replace the old church of St Mary’s which fell into disrepair and whose ruins can still be seen on the hillside.

The first service at St Cuthbert’s was held in 1827.

There are many things of interest in our beautiful church, most notably the rich vibrant stained glass east window (depicting the magi visiting the infant Jesus) and Harrison and Harrison organ.

Whilst visiting St Cuthbert’s why not visit the ruins of the 14th century church of St Mary’s which are up a steep hill at the top of the High Street (Old Church Lane).
