UK Ringers – Take a walk into Middle-earth with Penkridge library
A celebration of all things JRR Tolkien will be held at Penkridge library to highlight Staffordshire’s local link with one of the world’s favourite authors.
Literary lovers can take part in a guided walk from Penkridge Library across the Teddesley Estate, passing through Gipsy Green where Tolkien’s cottage of 1918 still stands.
Free copies of the book ‘All Quiet on the Western Front’ will be given away to participants as part of the celebrations for World Book Night.
Staffordshire County Councillor for Pat Corfield, Cabinet Member for Culture, Communities and Customers, said: “This is a lovely way to spend a Spring day, exploring the area that helped to inspire JRR Tolkien. This is a wonderful and innovative idea from our library staff in Penkridge.”
