There is a wide range of outdoor areas including the courtyard with its orangerie, Monks Walk and the public pocket park in front of the Bishops Lodgings. The new proposal not only retains and enhances the existing Monks Walk but extends it into a new courtyard area, whereby a generous amenity space is created for residents and visitors. A linear orangerie defines the eastern edge of the new walled courtyard garden and gives residents the opportunity to engage in gardening in a sheltered environment.
