Book Session

Visit Sarehole Mill and learn how Tolkien used real people, places and memories to inspire his story writing.

Together we will explore the local area and discover how it has changed from Tolkien’s childhood using maps and photos of the area. We will take a walk to Moseley Bog, and learn about Tolkien’s childhood growing up here and how the people and places found their way into his works. Children will have chance to explore the woods and use the inspirations we have talked about to help develop their story writing skills such as setting a scene and creating a character.

School visits to Sarehole Mill are available Wednesday - Friday.
