A Tolkien-themed bucket list — 15 must-sees

September 1, 2012 at 10:13 pm by linuxelf  - 

Imogen Reed from The Tolkien Library has compiled a list of Fifteen Places Tolkien Fans should Visit before they Die. As Reed explains, these places, where he grew up, lived and worked, were important sources of inspiration for Tolkien’s works.

The list includes the The Eagle and Child, the pub where he regularly met with C.S Lewis and other writers as well as Sarehole Mill on the outskirts of Birmingham. Tolkien spent much of his childhood at Sarehole, and which many believe its rolling fields, pastures and woods and with the Mill itself was Tolkien’s inspiration for Bag End, and the woods and fields the Shire.
