The Water

Revision as of 09:06, 13 May 2007 by Findegil (Talk | contribs)

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.


  • Possibly The River Cole in Warwickshire, England.
"Over the road a meadow led to the River Cole, little more than a broad stream, and upon this stood Sarehole Mill..."
