Buck Hill

The hill that held Brandy Hall

A hill overlooking the village of Bucklebury in Buckland, deeply burrowed with the smials that made up Brandy Hall, the ancestral home of the Brandybuck family.



It seems to follow that Buck Hill could not have been called 'Buck Hill' before Gorhended Oldbuck settled in Buckland and began the delving of Brandy Hall. If the hill had a name before this time, it is not recorded.
