A source of free drinking water and a historical reference to Ripley's history all in one.
Ripley's parish church is quiet with noteworthy features inside it. However the musket ball holes in the walls around the church graveyard are particularly sobering. The graveyard has a good view of Ripley lake
Ripley Castle is set in a beautiful landscape with its own lake and waterfall. For the best view of the castle take the path signposted for the deer park, walk past Eel tower and pause at the bridge over the waterfall to admire the castle in its all glory as it is reflected in the lake's water. The friendly tour guides provide a thorough guided tour of the castle itself sharing stories about its bloody English civil war connections. The gardens are well tended, colourful and child friendly.
