Church of England Diocese of Leeds St. Margaret, Ilkley

About Us

Situated below Ilkley Moor, our church was designed by the famous Victorian architect Norman Shaw and dedicated in 1879. The rather austere exterior belies the treasures within; in addition to beautiful stained glass, there is a stunning reredos, a wonderful series of Stations of the Cross and a remarkable modern 'Madonna of the Moors' painting by a renowned local artist.

Our worship is in the Anglo-Catholic tradition with music playing an important part in our services - thanks to a talented Director of Music and junior and senior choirs. Regular masses are held, along with Choral Evensong on a Sunday, with Solemn Evensong & Benediction taking place on major feast days. Confessions are by appointment with our clergy. The newly built adjoining Parish Hall provides a venue for fellowship after services and a range of social activities.

St Margaret's caters for all ages and has a warm and welcoming congregation.
