Baggins... Shire... Can't Post

When the Black Riders are looking for Frodo in FOTR, we see a Rider approach a man outside chopping wood. Do you think it was Farmer Maggot? Or perhaps the Old Gaffer? I'm not sure he was actually credited in the film cast.

Thanks [In reply to] Can't Post

For the link Magpie. So my second question is who are the two additional hobbbits with Frodo and Sam in the Green Dragon? It must be Ted Sandy man and the Gaffer!

BlackFox gave you the answer but... [In reply to] Can't Post

the answer was on the same page I linked you to.

Which makes me think you didn't visit the page. ;-)

That's okay.. no one does. They're just hoping to get an answer and going to another page withe more info is too much work.

Thanks for the page, M. It probably doesn't matter but I know you like to tie up loose ends. There's an "unidentified Hobbit child" at the bottom of the page. I'm inclined to trust intuitive jumps and the first thing I thought of when I saw the photo was the scene where the children chase Gandalf's wagon as he enters Hobbiton and sets off some fireworks.

Hmmm. . . [In reply to] Can't Post

I clicked on your "Old Noakes" link and "One Wiki" say the Ivy Bush was in Hobbiton. I always thought it was in Bywater?

Am I wrong? Unsure

You're right, Bracegirdle. In FOTR: A Long- Expected Party, the text says "'[The Gaffer] held forth at The Ivy Bush, a small inn on the Bywater road;..."

Thank you Ithilisa - but [In reply to] Can't Post

On second look Bywater Road runs through Bywater and through (or very close to Hobbiton). I don't take this map as absolutely accurate but I can find no textual reference as to exactly where the Ivy Bush is located except that it's on the Bywater Road. According to this map it could be in either Bywater or Hobbiton or somewhere in between?

I'm tempted to rule out Bywater [In reply to] Can't Post

We already have The Green Dragon located there. Though this doesn't mean there couldn't have been more than one inn in Bywater, of course; it's just that I feel it's more likely The Ivy Bush is located either in Hobbiton or somewhere in between the two villages.

Makes some sense BlackFox. . . [In reply to] Can't Post

Well now I think Iíve changed my mind (not completely). But it was likely close to or in Hobbiton. I wonder if Bilbo ran past The Ivy Bush on his way to meet the dwarves.

For fun BlackFox: How many taverns can you name (no peekee unless absolutely necessary). I know of seven. Tongue

I can think of six [In reply to] Can't Post

Of which I can name five: The Prancing Pony, The Green Dragon, The Ivy Bush, The Floating Log and The Golden Perch. I know there was another inn near the Brandywine Bridge, but I can't remember what it was called.
