The procession has become a treasured Ripon tradition.

Teaming up with Ripon Re-Viewed - an important project which carefully documents historic photographs of Ripon, we would like to share with you a selection of images from processions gone by, that should hopefully get you in the spirit of this year's event on August 3...

Here the procession passes what was the St Wilfrid's pub on North St. The horse is led by Frederick Skirrow (left) and Charles Skirrow.
The Mayor, Coun John Richmond, and the Mayoress, accompany the St Wilfrid's parade. The carriage is passing what was Doubtfires Yard on Skellgarths, which is now Bedern Court.
