Situated opposite the castle in the lovely village of Ripley, All Saints Church is well worth a visit.This late 14th century church is the successor to a much earlier church, although the date of the first church in Ripley can't be stated with any accuracy and estimates range from the 8th to the 12th centuries.

This "new" church was constructed in its present position circa 1390 and consisted of a nave, north aisle and tower. Elements from the previous building were also incorporated at this time, including the Piscina and Credence Shelf. The tomb of Sir Thomas Ingleby was also moved from the previous "sinking chapel". This "sinking chapel" being so called because - well it sunk! This was likely due to a combination of structural instability and erosion of the soil by floodwaters from the nearby River Nidd, although nobody is entirely sure.

Over the following centuries the church was added to to include a south aisle and north and south Chantry Chapels. As one might expect, there is much to see and admire here and, in addition to the 14th century Piscina and Credence Shelf, there is a 14th century Rood Screen, which was also rescued from the sinking chapel.

From the 15th century there is another Piscina as well as a Sedilia and Hagioscope and there are many ancient grave slabs to discover.
