Three Farthing Stone

Three Farthing Stone and a senior Hobbit (The Lord of the Rings Online)

The Three Farthing stone marked the point where the Westfarthing, Southfarthing, and Eastfarthing met.


It lay on the Great East Road that ran through the Shire between Bywater and Green-hill country. Here, close to the center of the Shire, Sam Gamgee tossed what remained of the dirt from Galadriel into the air to help repair the damage Sharkey and his men had done.[1][2]
