The Archdeacon of Craven was a senior ecclesiastical officer within the Diocese of Bradford. The final archdeacon was Paul Slater.[1]

As an Archdeacon, he or she was responsible for the disciplinary supervision of the clergy [2] within four area deaneries: Bowland, Ewecross, Skipton and South Craven.[3] The archdeaconry was erected, part of the new Diocese of Ripon, on 5 October 1836 by Order in Council under the Established Church Act 1836[4] and transferred to the Diocese of Bradford upon that diocese's creation on 25 November 1919.[5] Upon the creation of the Diocese of Leeds on 20 April 2014,[6] the archdeaconry was dissolved and its territory added to the Richmond archdeaconry; Slater was automatically transferred (by the legislation) to the newly-renamed post of Archdeacon of Richmond and Craven.[7]
