In the heart of North Yorkshire is the city of RIPON, the third smallest in England, which was founded by St. Wilfrid. The city is well placed for tourism as it sits in part of the Dales, is near Studley Royal Park and also the UNESCO site of Fountains Abbey. In the heart of the city stands the strong stone building of the cathedral built by St. Wilfrid in 672. It is the seat of the Bishop of Leeds. The present structure is the fourth and Grade I listed. Its 13 bells are hung in the South West tower and they will be ringing for St. George on April 23rd.
