|Surprisingly enough with a name like
Ryme Intrinsica it sounds as though this is a pretty parish but it is
not one of the pretties places in the county! And the only place of
interest here is the church dedicated to the strange sounding saint, St
Hypolite and only two churches in England have got this name.
The village name means the Inn or homel part of the Ryme manor as opposed to the out part once called Extrinsica
Hypolite was born in 170AD and he was a gaoler who was elected to guard St Lawrence and St Lawrence so impress Hupolite that he converted to Christianity and eventually became Bishop of Ostia near Rome but he was against the pope and died in 236AD a martyr.
