Overhill

The village beyond Hobbiton Hill

Map of Overhill

A small village to the north of Hobbiton and the Hill, marking the end of the short road that ran past Bag End and Bagshot Row. Though the Boffin family was generally associated with the Yale to the east of the Shire, we know of at least one Boffin who lived in Overhill: an apparently well-to-do hobbit who employed Sam's cousin Halfast.
