BBOWT Nature Reserve

BBOWT Nature Reserve

The CS Lewis nature reserve in Risinghurst, Oxford, is owned by the Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust since 1969. Formerly a quarry, the C S Lewis nature reserve consists of an area of tranquil woodland with a large garden pond. The former used to be a Victorian clay pit and was used to make bricks, hence the name of CS Lewis' house, 'The Kilns'. CS Lewis lived at the site from 1929 until his death in 1963 and it is thought that the gardens inspired the classic Narnia books including The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe.
