Why name our room ‘C.S.Lewis’?

C.S. Lewis attended school in Malvern for a few years (both the Cherbourg House preparatory school, and later Malvern College).  George Sayer was a student and friend of Lewis’ from Oxford University that went on to teach at Malvern College.  Consequently, Lewis and Tolkien regularly visited Malvern from Oxford (where they were both professors at the University) and walked in the Malvern Hills.  The views across Herefordshire from the Malvern Hills are thought to have helped shape the land of Narnia, and possibly even aspects of Middle Earth or other lands in the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings.

An oft-repeated but hard to pin down anecdote tells how Lewis used to meet with Tolkien in The Unicorn Pub at Malvern. On a snowy evening, when he had just left the Unicorn, Lewis was inspired by the sight of a Malvern gas lamp and this led directly to his account of a Narnian wood, close to the start of The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, where a gas lamp post stands alone, amid the gathering snows.
