Map of the Shire from lord of the rings

Located on this map of The Shire

A rural, fertile, and slightly warmer area of the Shire, the Southfarthing is the site of the towns Gamwich (original home of the Gamgee family), Cotton, and Longbottom, and much of the Pipe-weed production.[1]

History Edit

The Southfarthing was also the source of the Old Winyards wine. It was also the home of the Sackville-Bagginses and thus was the first area in the Shire to fall under the control of Lotho Sackville-Baggins, during the War of the Ring at the end of the Third Age.[2]
