The Hornblower of Ripon

In this centuries old tradition, the Hornblower arrives in the market square and blows the horn 4 times, once at each corner of the cross, to tell the people of Ripon that the 'Wakeman' (the night watchman) is now protecting their town so they can safely go to bed. A truly unique spectacle to behold.
