It is the oldest complete crypt in England. Much of the minster that survives today dates from the early 13th century but the history of mediaeval disasters meant that alterations and restorations were conducted during the 15th century. The minster became a cathedral as late as when the diocese of Ripon was created along with its new bishop. The choir screen is especially fine, as are many of the carvings in the choir and elsewhere.
