This site:
http://vacations.suite101.com/article ... nd-city-walking-in-the-uk

has provided me with this quote:
"These include Sarehole Mill and the gates leading to the University of Birmingham law building. Both features are thought to have possibly inspired Birmingham born author JRR Tolkein when writing his epic novel The Lord of the Rings."

Okay, I'm laughing at the "Birmingham born" bit, but does anyone know about the gates leading to the University of Birmingham law building? I haven't heard of that as a source before, but this doesn't mean it isn't true.

The "Edge of the Wild" event, planned for 26 - 29 March in Moreton, is being postponed until an (unspecified) date in the summer. Angela Gardner's new book will be launched at the rescheduled event.

Does anyone know if it's still possible to take out three year subscriptions for this, and how best to do it? I emailed WVU Press last week, but haven't had a reply.

Thanks

Um, I'm confused. Who are you again?
