There’s a village in Surrey named Ripley and also one in Derbyshire, as well as Ripley castle and village in Yorkshire. The castle has been occupied by the same family, the (Ingilby family) for a little over 700 years, which given the rather turbulent history of Britain is rather remarkable as most mansions changed hands over the years in the reigns of different monarchs. It was Sir William Ingilby who virtually rebuilt the village of Ripley when the thatched cottages were becoming dilapidated. He modelled his village design on a model estate village he had seen while travelling in Alsace-Lorraine and that is the reason Ripley doesn’t have a Town Hall, but a Hotel de Ville. This Ripley has a ‘weeping cross’ although the cross part is missing, the base can still be seen in the churchyard of All Saints Church. This is perhaps the only ‘weeping cross’ left in Britain. It has several recesses in it where people would rest their heads while kneeling at the foot of the cross and publicly crying and showing remorse for past sins.
