Ronald K. Brind

C.S. Lewis in Oxford

A Guide for Visitors

Ronald K Brind – The Legendary Ron

I was born in Risinghurst, Headington, Oxford just a couple of hundred yards away from Lewis’s former home the ‘Kilns’. I would visit the Kilns as a 10 year old boy with a shotgun and fishing rod under my arm asking Mr Lewis for permission to shoot and fish on his land, he never once refused me. He really was a likeable man even though I didn’t know who he was at the time. A shotgun licence in those days could be purchased from the local Post Office for ten shillings per year, the equivalent of fifty pence today, half of a British pound!

You may well be wondering why the referred to ‘legendary Ron’ and the answer is that on one occasion I had American Christian Rock Band ‘Third Day’ do the tour with me along with their traveling Pastor Nigel James. It was Nigel who used the words ‘legendary Ron’ that you can read about in the following link.
