|Location||Eastfarthing, the Shire|
Rushey was a small village south of the Marish, in the Eastfarthing of the Shire. It was built on a relatively stable ground amidst the soggy fens of the Marish, hence the name. The Causeway traversed the village, connecting it to the villages of Stock to the north and Deephallow to the south.
