'Our' Bishop to retire

It has been announced that Bishop James Bell, Bishop of Ripon and formerly Bishop of Knaresborough under the previous diocese of Ripon and Leeds, is to retire at the end of next April.

See the full story on the Diocese website

We were always much taken with his episcopal staff with the carved rebus on the crook.

We wish him well in his preparations for retirement.
