Hobbiton Hill

(Redirected from The Hill)
The Hill - Hobbiton across the Water by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Hobbiton Hill, usually called simply The Hill, stood to the north of the town of Hobbiton.[1] Bag End was tunneled into this hill by Bungo Baggins.[2]

The earth removed in excavating Bag End was shot over the edge of the sudden fall in the hillside onto the ground forming the Bagshot Row; it became the gardens and earthwalls of the other dwellings.[3]
