This group of dwellings is set in an extremely sensitive location between Ely Cathedral and the Great Ouse River.
It has been designed within a stringent development brief. The plot layout, roads, ridge lines and landscaping follow the west-east orientation of existing developments, restoring the traditional grain of the city.
The dwellings have gardens and integral parking, and are constructed mainly as terraces. There is an extensive range of two and three storey house types, including some that are very generous in size, and others that are affordable for the elderly.
Bishops Walk is vernacular in style, with local materials, construction methods and detailing being used throughout. The development offers a wide variety of elevational treatments. A north-south route allows uninterrupted views to the cathedral, and is bordered by small greens, pocket parks and cobbled walkways.
