When the Lord of the Rings movies were filmed in New Zealand the rural Waikato town of Matamata was selected as the location for Hobbiton, the cosy home of JRR Tolkien’s lovable Hobbit heroes. The locals have celebrated their claim to fame by carving a statue of Gollum out of local Hinuera Stone and giving it pride of place on their main street.
Gollum, of course, is famous for being single mindedly obsessed by one thing and one thing only. “The precious”.
At last, he has finally found it. The one scarf to rule them all!
