Hobbits’ Second Breakfasts In Lancashire – and Tolkien’s Links With Lancashire and His Faith


Click below for a short Granada Television report on St.Mary’s Hall children at Stonyhurst College in Lancashire enjoying a second Hobbits’ breakfast – at the place where Tolkien wrote some of The Hobbit and Lord of The Rings – and where two of his sons lived or taught. The other links take you to a talk and power point presentation on Tolkien’s connections with the Ribble Valley and the influence of his Catholic faith on his books and his relationship with C.S.Lewis.
