Revision as of 19:36, 6 April 2008 by Tik (Talk | contribs)

A dwelling of Hobbits in the Westmarch, the region between the Far Downs and the Tower Hills gifted to the Shire-hobbits some years after the War of the Ring.

It was at Undertowers that Sam's daughter Elanor settled with Fastred of Greenholm to found the Fairbairn Family, the hereditary Wardens of Westmarch. In time, the Fairbairns would become as influential as the Tooks and Brandybucks in the history of the Shire, and it was at Undertowers that they preserved the Red Book of Westmarch, whose contents formed the ultimate basis for the account of The Lord of the Rings.
