The Early History of Ilkley Quaker Meeting

11/07/2016

The older Quaker meeting houses in mid-Wharfedale – at Askwith, Addingham (Farfield), and Otley – had closed by the early part of the nineteenth century because of falling membership. Ilkley, meanwhile, was becoming prosperous, and accommodation for Quaker meetings there was established in 1862, followed by the erection of a purpose-built meeting house in 1869.

On 26 June 2016 I gave a short talk at Ilkley Meeting House that takes the story of Ilkley Meeting up to the 1890s. The text of the talk, The Early History of Ilkley Quaker Meeting‘, is now freely available online.
