Reflections on the Hodder

One of my favourite walks that takes you along the river in the footsteps of JRR Tolkien on the Tolkien Trail which explores the richly beautiful surrounding countryside that inspired him.

He visited this area frequently in the 1940's when his eldest son John was studying for the priesthood at Stonyhurst College and many of the areas around Hurst Green in Lancashire are based on places mentioned in The Lord of The Rings book.
