The news that Amazon has relocated filming to the UK is sure to be welcomed by Tolkien enthusiasts, who have long speculated on the real-life locations in Britain which may have inspired Tolkien’s work.


The English landmarks that shaped Lord of the Rings

Hardcore fans of the Birmingham author’s work have long speculated on the real-life locations in the UK which may have inspired the settings used in the fantasy novels.

It is thought the landscape of the industrial Black Country, a West Midlands area located near where Tolkien grew up, shaped the imagery of Mordor, the realm of the evil Sauron in Middle-Earth.

Elsewhere, the Shire, home to the hobbits, is often thought to have been based on Worcestershire, while Malvern Hills in the county inspired the White Mountains.

The great mountain range travelled in Lord of the Rings is supposed to have been inspired by the hills after the author visited a friend who was based there.

Amazon has yet to reveal the locations where its as-yet untitled series will be filmed, but has confirmed the relocation to the UK and that production will start from next year.

The nordic people were free to travel in the Scandinavian countries including Finland. No passports or travel documents were needed. The freedom still today is the most important for the Scandinavians from that epoch. Freedom is to travel, learn to know new countries and other languages, and meet different people and cultures. He wishes the new generations would have the same possibilities experiencing all that what makes you feel free, and building a strong personality. -
