The Water was a tributary of the River Brandywine that rose in the Westfarthing of the Shire, and flowed eastward to meet the Brandywine just north of the Brandywine Bridge. Hobbiton and Bywater both stood on this river.

Inspiration

The naming of the Water may be a parody of some sorts of Celtic hydronyms that mean simply "river" or "water."[1]
