The Tolkien Tour

The Tolkien Tour.

At last, it is now possible to recreate in its entirety the adventures in 'The Hobbit' and 'The Lord of the Rings' from beginning to end and anything in between. Many of these paths are accessible by both foot and horse (or pony). Costumes are, of course, permitted.
Each of the labelled points has a specific location to see, but due to a lack of space aren't listed here. However, if anyone's interested, I'll post some information and a picture on whatever location you desire to know more about.

The challenge is on; can any of you retrace the footsteps of your heroes?

Unfortunately the resolution is low. I suppose the best thing to do is start at Oxford, England, where Hobbiton is, and work your way ahead. For instance, nearby is Bywater, which matches the location of the Wittenham Clumps.

Travelling down the E2 and E11 paths we will eventually come to the Bridge of Mitheithel (Hoarwell), or, as better known;The Last Bridge. This is in the city of Deventer, where, coincidentally, the movie "A Bridge Too Far" was filmed.

Then it's on to Osnabruck, which is near where Imladris, or more commonly known as Rivendell, was. It has nice botanical gardens.

Then we follow the Pied Piper of Hameln to the Goblin-cave, which are now called the Schillat.

We escape at the Goblin-gate at Lippold's Cave after passing through the Sieben Berge or 'Seven Hills', made famous by the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.
