Bishops Close is another of those annoying roads that does not actually lead anywhere but at least it offers different perspectives of South Lodge, the front aspect of which stares across Ham Common. Walking up there recently I noticed a few changes.
The side entrance had been significantly neatened and given a fresh modern look. It was somewhat at odds with the front of the lodge but as it looked in a different direction that was fine. The new works were sympathetic to the old bricks and that was all that mattered.
Bishops Close kinks around the back of South Lodge and offers views into the rear courtyard. This had also been considerably neatened and improved with crisp paving, tidy railing and some large pots.
