Ripon Cathedral

There has been a church on the site of Ripon Cathedral since 672 when Saint Wilfred replaced the timber of the monastery with one in Roman style. Today the church is the fourth to having been built on the site. The Cathedral was mostly built in the XIII century in Early English Gothic and later in the XV century, due to the outbreak of the war of the roses, in Perpendicular style. This was the first diocese to be established after the Reformation.

  1. Wonderful photos of perhaps not the grandest of Cathedrals, but you capture its intimacy so well!
