Stock as depicted in The Lord of the Rings Online

Stock was a town located in the Eastfarthing of the Shire, near the Brandywine River, between the Great East Road and Bucklebury Ferry.[1]


The town was the location of the Golden Perch Inn. Like the peoples of the Marish, the people of Stock and Rushey were very friendly with the Bucklanders and acknowledged the authority of the Master of the Hall. Some of the hobbits living there were members of the Maggot and Puddifoot families.

During Frodo and Company's journey to Rivendell, Pippin mentioned that he had hoped that they would pass through Stock in order to have a drink at the Golden Perch - hearing this, Frodo choose to avoid the town.[2]
