Tolkienian Doorway
It is rumoured that JRR Tolkien used this door as inspiration for the entrance to Moria in his little pamphlet ‘Lord of the Rings’. It’s certainly very similar to his line drawing, and Tolkien used to drink with his brother in a pub in Moreton-in-Marsh, just ten minutes away from this church. Draw your own conclusions, I have.
Imagine, if you will, knocking at the door. It opens with a well-oiled whisper, and the clear, grey eyes of a woodland elf pierce your soul as she says ‘Ah, Gandalf, I’ve just baked some muffins’. I’m sure Tolkien liked muffins. We all do.
In real life, this door is the north entrance to St. Edward’s Church in Stow-on-the-Wold. The two resplendent yew trees wouldn’t be allowed to be planted so close to a building these days. Building regs and all that.
