Fight for Rings river name lost

The battle for Middle-earth has been lost after a bid to rename a small section of a scenic river that featured in a Lord of the Rings film was declined by the New Zealand Geographic Board. Fiordland motorcamp operator Aaron Nicholson had proposed that a two-kilometre stretch of the Waiau River between Lakes Manapouri and Te Anau be renamed Anduin Reach. The area doubled as the Anduin River in Fellowship of the Ring, with cast members floating downstream in elfin boats. Fight for Rings river name lost
