The historic village is mentioned in the Domesday Book as Cotinglai. In 1917 two girls claimed to have photographed fairies at the bottom of their garden, which attracted the attention of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and inspired the film “A Fairy Tale” made by Mel Gibson.

The village was clustered around the original St Michael’s Church, town hall (Mechanic’s Institute) and Sun Inn. Cottingley now has many amenities including the highly regarded Yorkshire Clinic, Post Office, convenience stores, surgery, pharmacy and Cornerstone Centre. The world heritage site of Saltaire, Shipley Glen, Baildon Moor, Yorkshire Dales and the business centres of Bradford, Leeds, Skipton and Ilkley, are easily accessible via the regular bus network and train stations at Bingley and Shipley.
