Walker was educated at Leeds Grammar School and The Queen's College, Oxford.[2][3] During the Second World War he served in the RNVR and was then a teacher at The King's School, Peterborough and Merchant Taylors' School, Northwood before ordination in 1954. His first ordained ministry position was a curacy at Hemel Hempstead, after which he was fellow, dean and lecturer at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge.[4] From 1962 to 1972 he was principal of Westcott House, Cambridge.[5]

In 1972 he was ordained to the episcopate as the Suffragan Bishop of Dorchester.[6] In 1977 he was translated to become the Bishop of Ely, a position he held until his retirement in 1989.[7]


He died in Cambridge on 28 December 2010, aged 91.[8]
