The Shire

The Story of Lyndhaven

Lyndhaven, many many years ago, was a vast forest full of wondrous and amazing creatures, and we had but a small township of inhabitants sheltered by magnificent elms.For many years the people went about their lives, taking for granted the protection that was always offered by the thick groves surrounding them until a strange curse descended over their township. One by one, each Elm started to lose its bark and, soon after its leaves… and the spark of life faltered and went out.

It had become evident that action was needed so the townsfolk called a meeting. At this meeting, the people decided to go on a journey to find a new tree that would be just as tall, just as majestic and just as protective as the elms had been for so many years.

With great optimism, the bravest townsfolk went into the deep forests of the Shire in search for new symbol, and this new symbol was brought back to the town. It was the Lynden. In celebration, the people decided to spread this symbol…this hope…through the Shire and gave it a name, Lyndhaven.

Now, today, there stand many Lynden throughout the whole Shire and with them, many people under their protection.
