Ripon Cathedral is one of the smallest and oldest in the country, and the Saxon Crypt, built in c.672 still survives today. Visitors can walk though the Crypt and view St Wilfrids Needle ( said to be a medieval test of withcraft if the suspect could not pass through it ), and several precious relics. The Saxon crypt originally stood beneath the high altar of St Wilfrid's basilica, and the curved vault may have been constructed from stone from a Roman building. The large niche on the far wall may have held relics. On the concreted floor is the platform for an altar, demolished in 1568. Illumination is from an oil lamp converted for electricity.
