The Hobbit

Inspired by Birmingham The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings

The Hobbit

Few people realise it, but the city's environment and surrounding countryside served as inspiration for J. R. R. Tolkien's classic sagas The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. The author grew raised in Moseley from the age of four, and the stories are based on local sites and people.  The Hobbits' home, the 'Shire,' was inspired by the fields and mill at Sarehole, a village that has since been absorbed into the city's suburbs, while Perrott's Folly and the Waterworks Tower in Edgbaston, as well as the University of Birmingham's illuminated clock tower, can be seen in The Lord of the Rings.
