C. S. Lewis (1898-1963) From this favourite vantage point C.S. Lewis, saint and scholar from the County Devon, enjoyed a view of the countryside and Belfast Lough after walking tours locally with his lifelong friend Arthur Greeves. Devoted to his native County and Oxford University, C.S. Lewis loved both places. His description of perfection recorded in 'C.S. Lewis - at Home in Ireland' says it all. 'Heaven is Oxford lifted and placed in the middle of the County Down.' During 1998 North Down Heritage Centre made an important contribution to the C. S. Lewis Centenary Celebration.
