Middle Earth is closer to home than you think
From Northhumberland Gazette: Reader Phil Murray spotted something that looked very familiar when he pulled out the A3 The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey poster that came with the Total Film magazine, the fields of the shire in the background of the poster reminded him of Edlingham Castle with the old Alnwick to Wooler railway viaduct and the Simonside Hills which can be seen in the atmospheric artwork as the ruined keep.
“The level of detail in such a large version of the picture piqued my curiosity and I dived onto my computer to hunt for a picture I’d taken of the castle a couple of summers ago to see if my hunch was correct. I was stunned when it matched up perfectly – even the field boundaries immediately around the castle were the same in the poster as in real life”
