Bywater Pool

A small lake in the Water

An oval pool that formed in the Shire-river known simply as the Water. It formed at the inflow of one of the Water's tributaries, just to the southeast of Hobbiton. A community of Hobbits lived on its shores, notably in a row of Hobbit-holes along the Pool's northern bank. The village around the Pool was known, naturally enough, as Bywater, the village by the Water.
