This article is about the Causeway road in the Shire. For the Causeway in the Gondor, see Causeway (Gondor).

The Causeway was the road in the Eastfarthing that ran from Deephallow north through Rushey and Stock and ended at the East Road.[1] The road was high banked and ran parallel to the Brandywine opposite of Buckland. Frodo rode in Farmer Maggot's wagon on the part of the Causeway that stretched five or more miles from Maggot’s lane to the Bucklebury Ferry.[2]
