Ripon Cathedral, West Front
Ripon Cathedral, West Front
Ripon Cathedral was founded by St Wilfrid who brought craftsmen from the continent to build a new stone church dedicated to St Peter, in 672. The only part of Wilfrid’s church to survive, however, is the ancient Saxon crypt. Much of the church, as it stands today, dates from the 12th century, though most of the nave was substantially rebuilt in the 15th and 16th centuries.

The splendid Early English west front dates from the early 13th century.
