Made to commemorate the City’s 11th Centenary. By tradition the city received its first charter from King Alfred in 886 in the form of a horn.. Every night of the year, without fail, a horn is blown four times in the city’s market place and then outside the house of the Mayor to set the ‘watch’. The cover is fashioned from blooms and foliage of the wild briar, here portrayed in a naturalistic style but, in its heraldic form, reminiscent of the Yorkshire Rose. There are eleven roses, one for each of Ripon’s centuries.

The first centrepiece was presented to the Queen Mother on her visit to Ripon on 1st June 1986
