The excellent book Tolkien in East Yorkshire 1917 – 1918, by Phil Mathison, delves into the specifics of Tolkien’s stay in his part of the world in great detail, and I would highly recommend it. Not only does it give specific. Part of this involved travelling to the beautiful woodland of Dent’s Garth, near the Church in Roos. It is noted in the book as possibly being the place where Tolkien would have sat, watching his wife dance for him, and I would encourage anyone who visits the area to pay a trip there, if only to get a sense of walking in his footsteps, nearly some 100 years ago.

by Phil Mathison (Author). Had Tolkien not spent nearly eighteen months convalescing in the East Riding of Yorkshire, then he would probably not have survived the Great War. By August 1918, his battalion, the 11th Lancashire Fusiliers, had suffered so many casualties that few remained and the unit disbanded. If this grand master of literary creativity had fallen in France, there would have been no tales of Hobbits, Middle-earth, and certainly no ‘Lord of the Rings’.

If this grand master of literary creativity had fallen in France, there would have been no tales of Hobbits, Middle-earth, and certainly no 'Lord of the Rings'. Having deprived Great Britain of so many promising young men, it would have been a further tragedy if the First World War had extinguished this unique talent too. This modest publication, which contains a number of previously unpublished details about the author's stay in the area, attempts to guide you around the corners of East Yorkshire that have a Tolkien connection. His stay recuperating at Brooklands Hospital in Hull gave JRRT time to develop his writings, but it is the fragile and atmospheric coast of Holderness where he was billeted that helped to inspire elements of the mythology that ultimately came to fruition in his classic trilogy. I have entitled this area 'The Tolkien Triangle', for it is bounded by Hull in the west, Hornsea in the north east, and Kilnsea in the south east.
