Airton Meeting House closed for the time being

With great regret we’ve closed the Meeting House to all visitors until further notice in response to the need to contain the present Coronavirus/Covid-19 epidemic.  However, if you’re passing and would like to spend time in this special tranquil atmosphere, you can still access the grounds.  There is also a window display summarising the history of the building to view.  In order to help prevent spread of the virus, we ask visitors not not try the handle of the Meeting House door, which is locked.

‘A year in poems’

This year we’re inviting past visitors and guests as well as local residents and friends to submit original poems for us to add to our website and display on our notice boards.  Each month, a poem with be selected from those submitted.  Poems could be about life in Malhamdale, its history, the wonderful Yorkshire Dales landscape, the natural world, or something you find in the beauty and tranquillity of Airton Friends Meeting House.  They could be reflective, funny or inspiring.  You don’t need to have written before, and submissions from people of all ages and backgrounds are welcome!  See ‘A year in poems’ on this site for further details.
