Ripley

A quiet village just north of Harrogate, with a magnificent stately castle, surrounded by lovely gardens and parkland. Ripley Castle and All Saints Church face each other across the village’s cobbled square. The church contains the tombs of several of the Ingilby family, who’s descendants still live in the castle today. Within the churchyard is one of the few remaining ‘weeping’ crosses in Britain – a pedestal with a hole in the top for the reception of a larger cross and surrounded by small recesses where penitents could kneel in certain discomfort.
