Risinghurst, Oxford
A former air-raid shelter in the C.S.Lewis Nature Reserve - adjacent to the author's former home - near to one of the flooded claypits in the vicinity. The Lewis brothers and their dependent, Mrs Janie Moore, owned this 8 acre area of woodland a stones throw from their home, "The Kilns", and they had this shelter built as a safety measure for themselves and the various child-evacuees from London who they hosted during 1939.
