Description:

Map of the Shire.
The Shire, showing Woody End in the eastern Green Hills.
Soon they struck... the road to Woodhall, and Stock, and the Bucklebury Ferry. It... wound over the skirts of the Green Hills towards Woody End, a wild corner of the Eastfarthing.

They took the Stock Road over the hills and went towards the Woody End.... They camped in the Green Hills....

The Return of the King, LoTR Book 6, Ch 9, The Grey Havens

[They] came back to the road at the end of the long level over which it had run straight for some miles.... [A] lane branched right, winding through a wood of ancient oak-trees on its way to Woodhall.

The Fellowship of the Ring, LoTR Book 1, Ch 3, Three Is Company

So far they had not met a soul on the road. This way was not much used, being hardly fit for carts, and there was little traffic to the Woody End.

The Fellowship of the Ring, LoTR Book 1, Ch 3, Three Is Company

'One can meet [Elves] sometimes in the Woody End. They don't live in the Shire, but they wander into it in Spring and Autumn, out of their own lands away beyond the Tower Hills.'

The Fellowship of the Ring, LoTR Book 1, Ch 3, Three Is Company

The woods on either side became denser; the trees were now younger and thicker; and as the lane went lower, running down into a fold of the hills, there were many deep brakes of hazel on the rising slopes at either hand. At last the Elves turned aside from the path. A green ride lay almost unseen through the thickets on the right; and this they followed as it wound away back up the wooded slopes on to the top of a shoulder of the hills that stood out into the lower land of the river-valley. Suddenly they came out of the shadow of the trees, and before them lay a wide space of grass.... On three sides the woods pressed upon it; but eastward the ground fell steeply.... Beyond, the low lands lay dim and flat.... Nearer at hand a few lights twinkled in the village of Woodhall.

The Fellowship of the Ring, LoTR Book 1, Ch 3, Three Is Company

They were looking across the Woody End towards the Brandywine River. The road wound away before them like a piece of string.

The Fellowship of the Ring, LoTR Book 1, Ch 3, Three Is Company

The hobbits scrambled down a steep green bank.... Their course had been chosen to leave Woodhall to their left, and to cut slanting through the woods that clustered along the eastern side of the hills, until they reached the flats beyond.
