A new home for Chris Bishop!

The name say’s it all!

Terms have been agreed and the keys handed over! Last night I moved into a new 2 bedroom flat in Clerkenwell, London. I’ll be continuing to living with my old school (Standish Community High School) and college (Winstanley College) friend John Phillips.

The place is a great penthouse 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment with awesome views of The City of London with our glass wall arrangement in our front room (see pictures below). We also have a massive private roof so I am sure they’ll be a few late Indian summer parties up there and I am tempted to winch some five-a-side football nets up there!

A little about Clerkenwell...

London's first gastropub, The Eagle, appranrly opened in Clerkenwell in 1991. Clerkenwell is the home of two of London's largest nightclubs, Turnmills and Fabric. The nightlife is centred on the north side of Smithfield market, revellers (does that make me a reveller then!) gathering alongside delivery teams from across Europe at the meat market on nights throughout the week. Several pre-club bars such as Smith's of Smithfield (Were I can often be found), Meet, The Castle and Bed Bar have flourished in the area

So I’m sure there be a few trips to Ikea (furniture) further trips to Smiths of Smithsfield and I’ll keep the blog updated with any flat updates and invites to any summer dinner parties!
