... telling us the story of how Hobbiton came to be. The family whose farm it was built on were sworn to secrecy, and to cover up all the activity going on (as roads had to be laid etc) they said the army were training before being deployed; they were also the people who built the road.

... the other side, winding our way back to camp.
