In a hole in the ground ...

... there lived a Hobbit.

I remembered this morning the Ice Houses of Rufford Park in Nottinghamshire and thought they would suit Grimmwood (just as background detail, tucked away in a panning shot), so I grabbed my camera and took my son with me and set off in the car. Ice houses were introduced into Britain in 1660. They were basically an early refrigerator and were often situated near lakes. When I first saw it a few years ago when we first visited the park, I thought it looked like a Hobbit prison.

We were there for a couple of hours (my son fell to sleep in his push chair, bless him) and I managed to get about seventy shots in all.
