Westfarthing of the Shire

The Westfarthing was one of the Four Farthings of the Shire, seemingly the most important.Michel Delving, the "capital" of the Shire, was in the Westfarthing, and the Free Fair was held there.The easiest frontier to guard. Rowdies occasionally entered the Shire through Gamwich, but the only other problems occured from supernatural creatures wandering in from Lindon or the Cracking Fells. The Westfarthing fyrd was usually taken by surprise in the latter case, as "hauntings " of this sort occured no more than once in a Hobbit lifetime.
