C.S. Lewis' swimmin' hole

C.S. Lewis' swimmin' hole

CSL's longtime home in the Oxford suburb of Headington included 8 acres of woodland in addition to the house. This pond was on the land, and was reputed to be a spot where the poet Shelley liked to sail paper boats. Lewis, very fond of "bathing," would swim here every day that the weather and his health permitted.
