Ripon, North Yorkshire
Cathedral Church of St Peter & St Wilfrid. The impressive West End. Both © Paul Brown. Alan Blacklock's side view is an impressive piece of image processing, joining as it does about 10 individual images. The long horizontal sweep from close range accounts for the central distortion. Another view. © David Regan (2010). This old postcard dates to no later than 1918 (it has a 1/2d. stamp - the postal rate increased to 1d. in June 1918). From Shayne van Rensburg's Collection. SE 314 711. Link.

A building on St. Wilfrid's Road has a chapel-look about it, and it has a name-plaque of Chapel House. Can you advise if this was indeed a chapel, and if it was, what was its denomination? © Steve Bulman (2015).
