The Ferry Lane was a short road that led from the Causeway, the high-banked roadway west of the Brandywine River, down to the ferry landing opposite Buck Hill in Buckland.[1] The lane was south of the town of Stock and five or more miles north of Farmer Maggot's lane. The entrance to the lane was marked by two tall white posts.[2] The hundred yards of Ferry Lane were edged with large white-washed stones and ended at a broad wooden landing-stage for the ferry to Buckland.[3]

It was at the entrance to Ferry Lane that Meriadoc Brandybuck caught up with Frodo Baggins and the other hobbits after their ride from Farmer Maggot's home.[2] After crossing the river the hobbits saw a Black Rider that had followed them down Ferry Lane to the landing.[3]
