The Amazing Medieval “Hobbit” Stone Houses of Staffordshire, England

These medieval cave houses carved from sandstone were abandoned by the last residents in the 1960s, but people were living happily inside them for over three centuries before that. Many people believe that these houses are featured in a very well-known book published in 1937, The Hobbit. The opening line of J. R. R. Tolkien’s book states, “The door opened on to a tube-shaped hall like a tunnel: a very comfortable tunnel without smoke, with paneled walls and floors tiled and carpeted, provided with polished chairs, and lots and lots of pegs for hats and coats – the hobbit was fond of visitors.” Tolkien was famously reluctant to name the places that inspired his stories. In fact, there are so many similarities between the 18th century Holy Austin Rock Houses and Tolkien’s description of the Hobbit holes that it becomes an obvious assumption that he must have seen or read about these remarkable dwellings.


The person that I was 
I hated 
When I disappeared 
All said was jaded 

Cast those stones, you will 
Replacing warming days 
We’ll just let it fade 

And as you said 

“When the waves come crashing 
and swallow us both 
When the waves come 
will we remain" 

I’m burning every bridge 
There is no looking back 
Not anymore 
Not after that 

Am I just a seam 
Thread between your fingers 
Something you didn’t mean 

Well I’m not the one to blame 
And I won’t hold your shame
