The Water

Revision as of 13:04, 26 September 2008 by Algernon (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.

Inspiration

  • 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..."
