"This person was 100% certain commissioned to demolish Tolkien's house."

Let's make it clear that the contractor was not commissioned to demolish Tolkien's house. The Tolkiens had not lived there for the best part of half a century. We are still not being offered any evidence that these items were on the premises when the Tolkiens lived there.

I know what Tolkien's address was in Poole - he used the house number and street name. I've looked in all the usual references and there's nothing to say that 'Tolkien called his house Woodridings'.

I don't like it when folk try and tell me they've got information that the rest of us don't have, and won't say where they've got it. Especially when the reason for doing so is to make money.
