Gamwich was a village in the Shire.

The original home town of the Gamgee family and source of Hamfast Gamwich's chosen surname, the town was also known for its own rope-making.[1]

Location

In The Atlas of Middle-earth, Karen Fonstad put its location out near the borders of the Westfarthing, but this is only speculation.[2]
