Ripon



It was a warm summer day and we’d decided to visit Ripon in North Yorkshire.  Ripon is a cathedral city, the third smallest city in England and the smallest in Yorkshire. We parked up and walked to the cathedral where we went inside for a look around.  The current church is grade I listed and was built between the 13th and 16th centuries, though was first founded as a monastery way back in the 660s. You can also go underground into the Saxon Crypt.  As we were leaving there was an orchestra rehearsing for the evening, so we stayed and listened to them play for a while. 


We had dinner in a little café just near the cathedral and finished the day by strolling along by the river Skell.
