The Ripon Hornblower

The Wakeman of Ripon


  • This site and the information it contains is hosted and provided for your help and advice by George Pickles, the last person to singularly hold the post of Ripon Hornblower (2003 to 2015) To see him in action on video please go to - No one does it like George. The duties of the Hornblower are now carried out by a team of Deputies on a rota basis. We wish them every success.
