Ribston Hall, north east front
Ribston Hall was built in 1674 for Sir Henry Goodricke and stands on the site of a preceptory of the Knights Templar. The chapel to the left of the house has some 13th century fragments dating back to these times. The Templars owned a large swathe of land in the area, comprising manor, vill and water mill with some 900 acres of arable land and 30 acres of meadow. Much of the surrounding parkland shows evidence of medieval ridge and furrow arable farming. Ribston Hall is also the home of the Ribston Pippin apple which was first grown here from seed brought from near Rouen in 1709. The Ribston Pippin is thought to be the 'parent' of Cox's Orange Pippin apples.
