Between Bishop’s Pond and Conduit Wood

So, ardent walkers in Richmond Park, the best time to find the remaining signs of the foundations of the South African Military Hospital, is in the winter months.

This is the view, on a fine autumn day in 2015, looking towards Conduit Wood.  (Bishop’s Pond was behind me.)

 

 

 

Bishop's PondTurn 180° and this is the view of Bishop’s Pond—unless I’ve got it hopelessly wrong!  Its proximity to Cambrian Gate heightens the ‘odds’!

I have yet to find the signs of the ‘lost’ hospital and hope that, in time, someone will do it for me!
