I recently read The Inklings of Oxford written by Harry Lee Poe and photography by James Ray Veneman. It's well worth reading and looking at the Oxford photos if you are a fan of CS Lewis, JRR Tolkien and the other Inklings or writers.
After we left the church visit we wandered around the old parts of the city. I noticed many old churches and grave yards and the monument to Thomas Cranmer where he was executed.
I was looking for The Eagle and Child pub or the Bird and Baby which it was fondly known as by the Inklings. I remember the photos in the book and felt like I was on familiar territory.
Suddenly I felt my heart leap and my feet began to run. I could see the pub sign. The place where Tolkein read out loud his Hobbit and CS Lewis read from Narnia. I was walking in literary and spiritual giants footprints. I peered through the closed down pub window. I could see the wood panelled room. Could this be the rabbit room where the Inklings met?
