"Not a Boaring Town !" Ripley by sandysmith

Ripley Travel Guide: 8 reviews and 47 photos

Ripley is a stone village in North Yorkshire, 3.5 miles north of Harrogate, on the A61 Harrogate - Ripon road. We passed by on the way to Fountains Abbey, it intrigued me enough, looking so quaint that we made a sshort stop off here on he way back. Since reading up about the place I wished I had stopped longer and looked for some of the features I learnt about - like its boar connection.
I'll leave you to discover about that on this page!
