Ripon and Pateley Bridge Rural District
It was created in the late 1930s by a County Review Order, by a merger of the Ripon Rural District and the Pateley Bridge Rural District. The rural district included most of Nidderdale, and villages surrounding and to the west of Ripon. The city of Ripon itself had its own local government.
