Very quiet and peaceful place. Difficult to find parking. Great place to spend an hour learning about your favorite Narnia author.

Our group came to see the church CS Lewis attended, and his grave there in the cemetery. The church is nice, although for England, not very old. It's very nice humble and beautiful building. My favorite area though was the graveyard/cemetery. So many gravestones that...More
