J.R.R. Tolkien's home is on Northmoor Rd. in Oxford, England. This was the second home the famed author lived in on the street, having resided in the house next door at 22 Northmoor from 1926 to 1930. Tolkien and his family moved here in January, 1930 and by that summer he had begun work on The Hobbit. In September of 1937 the novel was published to success and Tolkien almost immediately began work on a sequel. For the next ten years while he lived here he worked off and on on what would become The Lord Of The Rings. The first of the trilogy, The Fellowship Of The Ring, would be published in 1954. In March of 1947 Tolkien moved to Manor Rd. in Oxford.
