Campaign to Buy J.R.R. Tolkien’s House Launches, “LotR” Cast Gets Involved

An epic quest has begun, to raise funds to purchase the home of J.R.R. Tolkien. The hope of the Project Northmoor organization is to restore the property, and build a center devoted to celebrating “The Hobbit” and “Lord of the Rings” author, which at present doesn’t exist anywhere in the world.

Sir Ian McKellen helped launch the project this morning, sharing a video featuring other familiar Middle Earth faces.

The goal is to raise around $4.5 million pounds, to outright purchase the property and begin restoration and the building of a museum.
