Ripon and Pateley Bridge was a rural district in the West Riding of Yorkshire, England from the late 1930s to 1974.

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.[1] The rural district included most of Nidderdale, and villages surrounding and to the west of Ripon.[2] The city of Ripon itself had its own local government.

The district was abolished in 1974 under the Local Government Act 1972, being merged with other districts to form the Harrogate district of North Yorkshire.[3]
