Middle-Earth Weekend, LOTR, Birmingham, May 2012

4y ago


Each year in May Birmingham's Sarehole Mill becomes Middle Earth in celebration of JRR Tolkien and the time he spent in the area as a young boy. The Mill and its surroundings had a major influence on the young Tolkien - and inspired many aspects of the book The Lord of The Rings. 2012 marks the 75th anniversary of The Hobbit's first publishing and fans flocked to pay their respects...
