JRR Tolkien regularly visited Stonyhurst College in Hurst Green, Lancashire and wrote chapters of The Lord of The Rings there.
He walked the surrounding countryside and referenced local landmarks in his enchanting tales; Shire Lane in Hurst Green, Buckleberry Ferry inspired by Hacking Hall Ferry on the River Ribble and the River Shirebourne, named after historic local landowners the Shireburn family.
The Middle Earth Beer & Music Festival celebrates JRR Tolkien’s association with Stonyhurst College and the village of Hurst Green in the most appropriate way.
