There's a company in
London that's turning dreams into reality for Hobbit fans. West Stow Pods is
currently seeking funding for their Poddit Hole House project—a camping home
inspired by halfling homes. The 30-day campaign is looking to raise $78,000
to build the house, which is going to be used as a holiday destination. The
endeavor is in good hands: Alan Baxter—the man in charge of making sure
the project is carried through as authentically as possible—is a member of
the Tolkein Society and has visited many of the movie's filming locations.
The London location may not have exactly the same sights the original New
Zealand scenes boasted, but there's plenty to keep visitors busy in the area.
Travelers can visit the same culture that inspired J. R. R. Tolkien's dive
into his made-up Middle Earth at a nearby Anglo-Saxon village. Check out
the video below for more informaiton on the project and what to expect:
