Exploring Middle Earth: Tuckborough

Posted by on Feb 15, 2007  | Comments

Exploring Middle Earth: Tuckborough - Lord of the Rings Online -

Lord Of the Rings gives a look at Tuckborough.

In the area of the Westfarthing known as Tookland, the most prominent village is Tuckborough. Those who reside here amongst the hills, trees, and meadows, as the name of the village might suggest, are mostly Tooks, or cousins, relatives, or close acquaintances of Tooks, and are a friendly lot who welcome visitors from all parts of Middle-earth. It is here that travelers will find the Great Smials of the Tooks, an underground dwelling of immense proportions, and one which is still growing to this day, with a seemingly endless series of rooms and tunnels which have been continuously excavated for nearly 400 years.

Tuckborough is located at the western end of the Stock Road, as it makes its way across the Green Hill Country from Woodhall in the Eastfarthing. Hills perfect for Hobbit-holes feature prominently to the village's north and east, while to the west and south, the lands flatten considerably into broad meadows and green farms toward Michel Delving, Hardbottle, and the Shire's outlying villages.

Roads to and from Tuckborough are not many, so those who wish to travel to this region of the Shire had best be ready for some cross-country hiking, which will likely include steep hills thick with trees and rolling valleys with swiftly flowing streams, although such travel in this peaceful part of Middle-earth tends to be a decidedly pleasant journey.
