A reader suggested that we create a map for fans of JRR Tolkien for when they are visiting England. So here we are.
Many of the places where Tolkien lived, worked or stayed have been honoured with a ‘blue plaque’. These are permanent markers attached to buildings or a location that has links to a famous person.
AS you can see, these locations vary from Bourmenouth on the south coast of England, right up to (lovely) Leeds in Yorkshire, with stops in Oxford and, of course, Birmingham.
I say ‘of course’ because Tolkien was brought up in Birmingham so do zoom in to the map to see all the locations.
