Fancy a Challenge?

Many areas in the UK claim to have inspired J.R.R Tolkien creation of middle earth but the author certainly spent a lot of his time at Stonyhurst College working on The Lord of the Rings during the Second World War Many have found connections with this landscape around the college and the 5.5-mile Tolkien Trail explores the Ribble Valley that may have inspired him.

J.R.R. Tolkien was renowned for his love of nature and wooded lanscapes and the countryside around Stonyhurst is richly beautiful. A number of names which occur in ‘The Lord of The Rings’ are similar to those found locally including Shire Lane (in Hurst Green) and River Shirebourn (similar to the family name which built Stonyhurst).
