Ripon Cathedral and St Wilfrid's crypt

Ripon is the fourth smallest city in England, so its cathedral is never far away. Here it is seen from the south across the River Skell.

Perhaps its outstanding feature is the crypt from St Wilfrid's seventh-century church on the site. The Ripon Cathedral website clams it is "arguably the oldest church building in England to have remained in continuous use".

You can enjoy a tour of the crypt on video.
