The Battle of Greenfields was a battle in Middle-earth which was fought during the year, TA 2747 in the Shire's Northfarthing, and was the only time the Shire was ever attacked by Orcs.

The Battle Edit

In that year a band of Goblins led by their king Golfimbul came to the Shire. They were confronted by a force of hobbits led by Bandobras "Bullroarer" Took, who was so huge (for a hobbit) that he could ride a horse. According to the narrative in the book The Hobbit, Bullroarer charged the ranks of the goblins of Mount Gram and with a wooden club knocked Golfimbul's head clean off, sending it sailing a hundred yards through the air and down a rabbit-hole, thus winning the battle.

No other battle occurred within the borders of the Shire until the Battle of Bywater in TA 3019.
