St John's church, Adel - Vestry window
St John's church, Adel - Vestry window
The oldest glass in the church is this window, by Henry Gyles of York dated 1681. This appears to be painted rather than true stained glass, and depicts the Royal coat of arms. From the 17th to 19th centuries it was the main east window of the church, but moved to the new vestry when the church was restored in 1879.
St John's church and hall, Adel

Adel is one of the oldest parishes in what is now West Yorkshire. The spelling in the Domesday Book was 'Adele' meaning a muddy place, and by the 18th century 'Addle', as shown on maps up to the mid 19th century, and in fact that is still (as of 2016) the legal name of the parish.

The church of St John the Baptist is of Norman origin (c.1150-1170), with alterations in the 14th, 16th and 19th centuries, but still remains less altered than many churches of its age. It is grade 1 listed (list entry 1255610). There is evidence of an earlier Anglo-Saxon church on the site, and the area has been farmed since Roman or possibly even Bronze Age times.

The church curtilage includes several other listed buildings and structures including the old Rectory (now a private house), stables (now the parish hall), three listed tombs, a sundial and a mounting block.
