Yes, if the walls of The Kilns could talk, they would speak at some length about the writing of some of the most remarkable books of this century. The Screwtape Letters was written there, as was The Great Divorce, Miracles, much of Mere Christianity, and, I think, some of the Chronicles of Narnia. . . . It was in this gracious house that Jack Lewis died peacefully in 1963. (Walter Hooper, quoted in C. S. Lewis Remembered: Collected Reflections of Students, Friends and Colleagues [Harry Lee Poe and Rebecca Whitten Poe, general editors; Zondervan, 2006])

Located on the outskirts of Oxford, where Lewis taught for years, the Kilns was C. S. Lewis's home.  He purchased the house in 1930 and remained there until his death in 1963. Originally built in 1922, on the site of a former brickworks (hence its name), it has been restored and now serves as a Christian study center. The address is The Kilns, Lewis Close, Risinghurst, Headington, Oxford, OX33 8JD, United Kingdom.  If you'd like to visit, you can find information here.
