Bindbole Wood was a small wood in the southern part of the Northfarthing in the Shire.

The name appears in the map of the Shire, but the letter o n the 1954 edition was not very clear; thus the name has been rendered Bindbale in many later maps (e.g. by Barbara Strachey and Karen Wynn Fonstad), and elsewhere, like in Robert Foster's The Complete Guide to Middle-earth (s.v. Bindbale).

Even Tolkien himself referred to Bindbale in a manuscript note when he was preparing the document later known as Nomenclature.[1]
