Whitfurrows

Revision as of 20:34, 17 June 2011 by KingAragorn (Talk | contribs)

Whitfurrows was a village or small town that lay on the East Road through the Shire, approximately midway between Frogmorton (about ten miles to the west) and the Brandywine Bridge (a similar distance to the east). It lay at the western edge of the Bridgefields region of the Eastfarthing.[1] Whitfurrows is hardly mentioned within Tolkien's work, though it does appear to have been a centre or staging-post of some kind for the Shirriffs during the War of the Ring.
