Some time ago, there was a little discussion on the biblioblogs about Bishop Tom Wright's castle (e.g. here in Tom Wright's castle and also in Paleojudaica), when it became clear that it was common for us British academics to be living in castles. Well now, Tom Wright has the full justification out in this latest addition to the N. T. Wright page:
The Bishop's Ministry at Auckland Castle
Meeting of Church Commissioners and Auckland Castle Trustees, Directors and Supporters
Auckland Castle, July 13 2005
Briefing paper from the Bishop of Durham
The long and short of it is that he's not budging from Auckland Castle. Nor should he either. I've been looking around properties in North Carolina, USA this last week and I can assure you that they are nothing like the standard castle a British academic would live in.
