[3] In 1906, Ridgeway moved to a house on Cornwall Gardens, South Kensington. [4] In the experimental area scheme of 1970, the bishop was given oversight of the deaneries of Kensington, Chelsea, Hammersmith, Hampton, Staines and Hounslow. [5] The bishops suffragan of Kensington have been area bishops since the London area scheme was founded in 1979. [6]
