Do you remember my posting this story by Saki?

Well, it is time to come clean; it was actually written by [livejournal.com profile] colinbj

"The area is full of surprises, and it inspired JRR Tolkien to write his Lord of the Rings trilogy as he was a student at the local Jesuit Stonyhurst College (which looks like a real-life Hogwarts)."

"Tolkien was also struck by the beauty of the moorland near Otley, which some say he used as a setting for the opening of The Silmarillion, a prequel to The Lord of the Rings."

At last! Someone else who realises what tripe some people talk!
"In the true tradition of boosting your profile – apparently Tolkien used to visit the Forest of Dean, therefore he must have visited Puzzlewood which gave him the idea of Fangorn Forest…. tenuous at best – but still a great place to go (especially if you’ve got kids)."
