I actually LIVE in MiddleEarth

Post#1 » Wed Jun 02, 2004 3:18 am

You may not be aware of this, but in the town of South Woodham Ferrers, in darkest Essex (England) there is a housing estate in which all the streets are named from Tolkien.

I live in Lorien Gardens, in a house called Mallorn.

In order to educate some of my neighbours I wrote an article for a local free journal. The article can be found HERE, while the adventure that this article spawned can be found HERE.

enjoy.

Very good, liked the site.

Shame they had all those street names in Essex (no offense, i'm sure its a lovely place really ;) )

Question, Should they (the country n town planners) have originally named Milton Keynes - Mordor?

{oh and welcome to PT btw Mr Bob :wavehello: }

Hey! An Essex Boy! I'm a relocated Essex Girl! Used to live in Rochford. And I once knew a Robert Massey.... ooooh er... no, it couldn't be.

South Woodham Ferrers had the first local(ish) Asda store.

It's possible Vee... I went to school in Romford... although if you still describe yourself as an Essex Girl, then maybe not as I admit to being... well old enough to know better!

I use the term 'girl' loosely.

Not really had much to do with Romford boys - way too Essexy and Londony for me. Anyway, the Bob I knew was Southend born and bred.

Neat place-names and articles about them, Bob'z. Sounds like fun. :elfcool:

Though Bob'z, the next time you are traipsing through your bucolic countryside, you may wish to revisit the "Fellowhip of the Ring" at the terminus of "Elronds Rest". :happyelf:
