Breredon and Grindwall in the Withywindle Marshes

A small village in southern Buckland, actually lying beyond Haysend and Breredon on the north bank of the Withywindle. The Withy-weir, a submerged dam across the river, kept the area immediately upstream flooded. The pond behind the weir, along with a carefully watched hedge and dike, separated Grindwall from the Old Forest. The Windle-reach, the river mouth below the weir, served the village as a harbor. Since "grind " meant wall in one of the old tongues , and there was an important gristmill in the village, the village name Grindwall was another Hobbit pun.
