Tolkein's bog in cash boost.
The area's Wildlife Trust will use up to pounds 500,000 of lottery grants to transform the wetlands, adding new car parking, footpaths and public art.
The news has been welcomed by fans of Tolkien, who used the bog as a childhood playground.
His great nephew, Tim Tolkien, says he hopes the spirit of the site will be preserved throughout the work.
