There can’t be all that many cities in Britain as diminutive in size as Ripon in North Yorkshire – but with so many claims to fame. It isn’t quite the smallest community in the UK to have city status thanks to its cathedral, which dates back over a thousand years. However, the fanciful animals carved into the pews inside the historic building are reputed to have inspired the Alice in Wonderland characters created by a young Lewis Carroll, whose father was once a canon in the area. Ripon is also home to Britain’s “Garden Racecourse”, the canal basin in the shadow of the cathedral is the most northern point on England’s connected waterways and, until recently it was home to a regiment of Royal Engineers who served all over the world, including in Iraq and Afghanistan. Every night, the Watch is still set at the foot of the obelisk in the Market Square by the city’s Hornblower in a tradition which dates back unbroken for centuries. But perhaps what is most remarkable thing about Ripon is its unshakeable and fiercely defended sense of community. It may be a city by name but, if you were to ask anyone who lives there, they would probably tell you it thinks like a village – epitomised every August when it celebrates its patron St Wilfrid with a colourful carnival parade through the streets. But, despite its small size, Ripon still offers diverse range of residential property, ranging from the Victorian and Edwardian terraces built in a ring surrounding the city centre, roomy three bedroom semi-detached homes from the 1975s and ‘70s and up-to-date modern properties built recently on the site of the old university college. A budget of £200,000 a few miles to the south in Harrogate may leave you with limited options but, in Ripon, it may be enough to allow you a choice of three-bedroom semi-detached family homes. Sadly, Dr Beeching’s railway reforms put paid to Ripon’s station but the city is within easy reach of the A1 (M) while modern double-decker buses run regularly to Harrogate and Leeds. A bypass completed in the 1990s has eased traffic congestion considerably, allowing more pedestrianisation and a more shopper-friendly city centre. Ripon also enjoys a choice of two supermarkets – one in the heart of city and another adjacent to the bypass just to the south. Signs on all approaches welcoming travellers to Ripon encourage you to “stay awhile amid its ancient charms”. The proximity of the Fountains Abbey – a World Heritage Site in its own right – the Yorkshire Dales, the peace and tranquillity of the nature reserve at Quarry Moor, the canal and the meandering River Ure and River Skell may be enough to persuade you to stay even longer than that.
