C.S. Lewis Square

The launch of the new space, C.S. Lewis Square was launched on Tuesday 22 December dedicated to the writer himself and it was poignant that this was unveiled on the 53rd anniverary of the death of C.S. Lewis.

The square, located at the intersection of the Connswater and Comber Greenways, features seven new permanent sculptures of characters from The Lion, the Witch And the Wardrobe:

Aslan, Maugrim, Mr and Mrs Beaver, the Robin, the White Witch, the Stone Table and Mr Tumnus. Come along and view the magnificent sculptures!
