Ripley Castle, Yorjshire

Sir Thomas Ingliby’s talk in April 2014 gave us an insight into the running of his Estate.  Ripley is a conservation area and modelled on a French village.  We have arranged a guided tour of the Castle commencing at 11.30 am, lasting approximately an hour and fifteen minutes.  This will be followed by a soup and sandwich lunch at The Boar’s Head - drinks not included - some 100 metres from the Castle, at 1.15pm.  It will be served in a private room to the right of the Reception area. Following this, your ticket entitles you to regain entry to the gardens, if you wish.

As this is a local visit, please make your own arrangements for travel to Ripley which is three miles north of Harrogate, just off the A.61.  At the large roundabout, just before the village, follow the signs for Ripley.  Park on the field prior to, or in, the village.  For those with sat nav, the post code is HG3 3AY.  Please meet in the courtyard of the Castle by 11. 20 am and remain outside the Castle until tickets have been distributed. 

£17.50 per head for the Castle tour, lunch and access to the gardens.  If you are an HHA member, the cost is £8.50.  Click here for the application form. Please complete and return to Pam Kirby, together with your cheque made payable to Linton Antique Society, at the address on the form, by 15 August.
