Ripley is twinned with Chateau-Renault, a small town in the Loire district in Central France.
The settlement of Chateau-Renault dates from the feudal wars that occurred in the eleventh century between the Counts of Blois and Counts of Anjou.
The town was renowned through nineteenth century France for the leather produced there, with levels of calcium carbonate in the water giving the leather produced there a thick resistance nature and the arrival of the railway in 1867 ensured that this product had access to the market.
There is a separate Ripley Twinning Association totally independent of the Town Council. Information and gifts from Chateau-Renault can be found in Ripley Town Hall.
