Close: An enclosed area around a church where people can meditate.
What a beautiful space I visited a few weeks ago. Though not at the height of its flowering show, the wisteria had already dropped its flowers, Bishops Close was an exquisitely formed garden. The framed views and curving garden beds create a space so serene that it is nearly impossible to not stop and sit on a bench and reflect on the beauty of creation. That miracle of which we are each a small delicate part.
