Overhill, as seen in The Lord of the Rings Online.

Overhill was a small village in the Westfarthing of The Shire.

It was located just north of Hobbiton and The Hill on a road that went past Bag End and Bagshot Row.[1]


Overhill was not known for any particular family of Hobbits, but one Boffin (known simply as Mr. Boffin) was known to have lived there. Sam's cousin Hal worked for Mr. Boffin in Overhill.[2]
