Perott's Folly in Ladywood

DID YOU KNOW?...

J. R. R. Tolkien lived in Edgbaston in his later childhood and it is thought that his inspiration for the 'Two Towers' was from being able to see both Perrot's Folly and  the Waterworks Tower in Ladywood nearby. This is still contested and it is also believed that 'Old Joe' at Birmingham University was influential as he lived in Hall Green during his early childhood. Tolkien liked to explore his local area including Sarehole Mill, Moseley Bog and Lickey Hills, maybe also inspiring his tales of ‘Middle-earth’.
