This is the fireplace in Joy’s room and no doubt a place where she and C.S. Lewis spent many nights talking before her death on July 13, 1960. Lewis married Joy Gresham in December 1956, The Times ran the following announcement: “A marriage has taken place between Professor C. S. Lewis, of Magdalen College, Cambridge, and Mrs. Joy Gresham, now a patient in the Churchill Hospital, Oxford. It is requested that no letters be sent.”
