Ripon, England – Part 1
We have lived and worked in Ripon for 21 years and in all of that time I have taken very few photographs of this very small city that we call home. In reality, as you will see from the photographs here and those to come in future posts, it is actually a small town in size, but because it has a historical cathedral and was once a much more important place, it is classed as a Cathedral City! If you read my last post, you will be aware that we are moving back home to Scotland as soon as our house is sold and Penny (my other half) retires in the summer. With that in mind, I have decided to ‘document’ Ripon in terms of photographs over the next few months, so that we have a record of where we lived for so many years, and also so that others via this blog, can see what the city looks like now! I have already published a few photographs of Ripon in a previous post, ‘John’s Mega Awards Ceremony’, in case you would like to visit after viewing this post. Just click on the link when you are ready!
If you use Google Maps or Google Earth, on the hybrid setting (which gives you an overlaid, annotated map and satellite image), you should be able to match up the photographs to the map! These are just random images which over a number of posts will hopefully build up into a ‘picture’ of this lovely Yorkshire city! Thanks for visiting and I hope you come by again!
