Hobbiton Road

The road from Bywater to Hobbiton

Near the Three-Farthing Stone, a road branched off the main East Road of the Shire, and ran northwestwards through Bywater and Hobbiton, and on towards Little Delving. This was the Bywater Road, also known - at least for the part of its length between Bywater and Hobbiton - as the Hobbiton Road. The road was normally lined with trees, but during Sharkey's occupation of the Shire, the trees were felled, and ugly new houses were raised along the roadside.
