Welcome to Ripon Civic Society

We are dedicated to protecting and enhancing the historic buildings and environment of the cathedral city of Ripon on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales and of the surrounding area.

Our aims include:

  • promoting heritage protection and conservation projects in the city and area
  • promoting the highest levels of architecture, planning and design
  • stimulating public awareness of the best qualities of Ripon and the surrounding area
  • acting as a leading voice in the development and prosperity of the city and the surrounding area.

The Society has around 150 members and is a strong voice in Ripon.  Why not join us?

Owing to Government advice on social distancing with regard to the Covid-19 epidemic our programme of events and visits is now suspended. 
Take care and stay safe.
