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

A truly lovely little church in Headington Oxford - made famous as it is the resting place of C S Lewis. If going to see the grave then it really is worth having a look inside the church. The etched windows are different but beautiful.

A visit to the church attended by C. S. Lewis is worth the small additional effort for anyone interested in the life of Lewis, particularly if you are already visiting The Kilns (nearby, where Lewis lived). Sitting in the sanctuary where he worshiped and seeing...More

There was a wonderful elderly fellow named Roy who showed us around. He was knowledgeable, and just a lovely person. Absolutely delightful.

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
