Welcome to the Washburn and Mid-Wharfe Valleys, our churches and communities
The United Benefice of Washburn and Mid-Wharfe comprises the four parishes of Farnley, Fewston with Blubberhouses, Leathley, and Weston with Denton.
In 1984 the three parishes of Fewston with Blubberhouses, Farnley and Leathley became a United Benefice. In 1996 the Priest-in-Charge of the three parishes became the Vicar of the parish of Weston and Denton in nearby Wharfedale. The four parishes formally became a United Benefice of Washburn and Mid-Wharfe in June 2008.
The Benefice is blessed to be situated in the southern part of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Located between Wharfedale and Harrogate, the area is home to some of the most beautiful countryside Yorkshire has to offer, and is well placed for access to the thriving university cities of Leeds and York.
