It is located on the Great East Road between the Three Farthing Stone and Whitfurrows. Its best known feature was The Floating Log inn. A short distance to the north lie a place where The Water broke into two streams, and in the middle there was a watery marsh-like place, which may have been responsible for Frogmorton's name "Frog Marsh". Bilbo Baggins claims to have walked from Hobbiton to Frogmorton in The Hobbit.
During the War of the Ring when Sharkey and his band of thugs took over The Shire, it was the base camp of the First Eastfarthing Troop company of Shirriffs who were responsible for arresting Frodo and Company when they returned to the Shire after the Quest of the Ring.
