Rippingale Village

A rural village where the farms outnumber the shop, 2 churches, small post office and the essential pub.

Most of this website has been closed down or dormant for some time now. Too many other commitments on my time and too many miles between me and Rippingale. I've left the photos up for nostalgia's sake! Rippingale Village now has a great website run by people that actually live locally! You can check it out here:
