Crickhollow

Revision as of 11:16, 11 October 2010 by Sage (Talk | contribs)

Crickhollow was a village in the northern parts of Buckland. It was mainly occupied with those who grew tired of the often crowded Brandy Hall. In T.A. 3018, Frodo Baggins bought a house here to which his possessions were moved, as an excuse for traveling east.

Etymology

Tolkien noted that the first element is obsolete of obscure meaning. A hollow is a depression on the ground.[1]
