Map of the Mathom-house in Michel Delving

The Mathom-house in Michel Delving (conjectural)1

A place in Michel Delving where the Hobbits collected and displayed items they had no particular use for. It was known to contain a store of weapons, and for a time also held Bilbo's mithril coat.


Notes

1

We have no canonical map of Michel Delving, and certainly not of the Mathom-house within it. Much of the map shown here is conjectural, based on the directions of known roads and the larger-scale geography of the region, but it does give some impression of where the Mathom-house lay relative to the better-known parts of the Shire.
