Hopefully leading the way to Nick Baines becoming Bishop of the new Diocese?

Hopefully the new bishop's cathedra will be in Ripon Cathedral - by far the finest church building within the new mega-diocese and Wilfred 's church, no less!

This is why he can be so positive about the coming new super diocese, as he'll be gone it won't trouble him.

It will however trouble all those who are left. I can see nothing but an unwieldy and fractious time ahead. The reorganisation will produce de facto at least four dioceses out of the present three.
