Cobble Glen was a road junction village , small , but with its own grange and a few functioning businesses . Cobble Glen had direct road links to every important keep and village in the North- and Westfarthings . In the event of conflict between the Hobbits and the Tarmas , it was the logical staging area for an invasion in either direction . Several local men made additional income as Tarma informants , keeping track of the comings and goings of important Hobbits .
