See the blue plaque at 47 Dun­dela Av­enue, where Clive Sta­ples Lewis was born in 1898, and drop into the CS Lewis ex­hi­bi­tion at Bel­mont Tower to see first edi­tions of his nov­els, col­lec­tions of let­ters and some of his aca­demic work from Ox­ford. At the for­mer rec­tory be­side St Mark’s Church, where Lewis was chris­tened, you can still see the lion-shaped door­knob said to have in­spired the char­ac­ter of As­lan.
