An Ecclesiastical corner.......

~Bishop's Court~

This beautiful Tudor Gothic style residence
sitting on the edge of Christ-Church Walk
has been the official residence to the Anglican Bishop since 1857
Although in no measure your average family home - it is some-what softened
by the pretty English style gardens and wonderful high stone walls

We have something very similar over in Double Bay just up from where my daughter lives. It is where the Archbishop of Sydney lives (Anglican). I think I read that they might have to put it on the market to get the diocese out of debt. Ours would probably fetch over 20 million.

Nice shots peeking over the fence and thru the spikes.
