note the letterhead at the top - 20 Northmoor Road - from where he wrote The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings
more from WikipediaProbably the most famous resident of Northmoor Road was the Oxford academic and author J. R. R. Tolkien. He lived at both No. 22 and then a larger house at No. 20 from 1930 to 1937. Tolkien wrote The Hobbit and most of The Lord of the Rings while living at At 20 Northmoor Road. There is now a blue plaque on the house.
Another resident was Sir Martin Wood, who set up his company, Oxford Instruments, in his garden shed at his house in Northmoor Road. Oxford Instruments went on to become a leading company in medical technology. Later, in the 1980s, Wood founded the Northmoor Trust, aimed at promoting nature conservation at Little Wittenham and Wittenham Clumps in the Oxfordshire countryside south of Oxford.
