Ripon Cathedral

Wednesday we had a trip out to see Ripon Cathedral. In many ways this place is just as impressive as the nearby York Minster

Of particular interest are the organ pipes some of which are huge and quite a distance from the organ keyboard, which now seems to have a duplicate at the top of the knave.

The choir stalls are decorated with intricate carvings one of which is a rabbit disappearing down a hole. Often thought to be inspiration for Lewis Carol who’s father was closely connected with the cathedral.
