Addingham is a West Yorkshire village of about 3,600 residents set within a predominantly agricultural landscape bounded by the River Wharfe to the north and Rombalds Moor to the south.
The Environment Group was set up by the village Civic Society in April 2016. Our principal aim is to protect and enhance (in some cases restore) the natural environment of the village and surrounding countryside for the enjoyment and well-being of both residents and visitors.

We stress the importance of environmental stewardship as we help our local community find ways of moving progressively towards a sustainable life-style. Our web pages here describe our local environment, our landscape and its history, our wildlife habitats and notable species as well as the pressures our environment faces from climate change and other forms of human activity.
We also describe the activities of our village group, how we are raising awareness within the village and pursuing our specific objectives of protecting and enhancing biodiversity, promoting sustainable housing, reducing our carbon footprint, adapting to climate change and minimising pollution.
