Ripon Cathedral dates back almost fourteen centuries with the present church being founded in 672 and it has been rebuilt several times since. The ancient Saxon crypt, one of the oldest in the country, is the only part of the original church that remains. The medieval woodcarvings that decorate the choir stalls are believed to have inspired Lewis Carroll with his novel, Alice in Wonderland.
