The short-lived prison cells of Michel Delving

When the Shire was taken over by Sharkey's Men during the War of the Ring, the storage tunnels of Michel Delving were converted into the so-called Lockholes. These were prison cells for those who rebelled against the new regime, among whose inhabitants were Mayor Will Whitfoot, Lobelia Sackville-Baggins and Fredegar Bolger.
