Green-hill country as seen in The Lord of the Rings Online.

Green-hill country was a hilly region in the Shire that covered the South, East, and West Farthings of the Shire.

Location and Description

It ran about fifty miles from west to east and was about ten to five miles at any given point from north to south. The smaller regions of the Tookland, the Tookbank, and the forest of Woody End were located in this hill region.

It main settlements were Tuckborough, the ancient seat of the Thain of the Shire in the western part, the village of Woodhall in the eastern tip, and the village of Pincup in the south. There was only one road in this region connecting any of the settlements and that was the Stock Road, which ran about ten miles from Tuckborough to Woodhall.

Inhabitants and History

The region seemed to be the traditional land of the Tooks who settled there when the majority of the hobbits came to the Shire after it was granted for them to live in by the King of Arthedain in TA 1601 (SR 1). Over many the many hundreds of years, other hobbit peoples settled there but the Tooks still remained in the majority.

Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee passed through this land when they were on the Quest of the Ring and later during the Scouring of the Shire, a hundred Tooks led by Pippin marched from Tuckborough and the rest of this land to fight against the Ruffians.
