"The books or the music in which we thought the beauty was located will betray us if we trust to them; it was not in them, it only came through them, and what came through them was longing. . . For they are not the thing itself; they are only the scent of a flower we have not found, the echo of a tune we have not heard, news from a country we have never yet visited.” C.S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b05nxn00 In this BBC Radio broadcast from March 2015, Helen Mark discovers a real life Narnia in the form of a tranquil Oxfordshire woodland that once belonged to CS Lewis.The reserve - now owned and managed by the Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust - was Lewis's back garden. Lewis and his brother 'Warnie' planted trees amongst the woodland. Lewis's red brick home 'The Kilns', still nestles to the edge of the reserve. Today it is cared for by The CS Lewis Foundation. CS Lewis was laid to rest in the grounds of the church where he worshiped, just a short walk away, at Holy Trinity Church Headington Quarry. This 25 minute program includes interviews with Reserve Warden Mark Bradfield, local historian Mike Stranks, Rev. David Beckmann and Walter Hooper.
