Another study that portrays the Hill at a greater distance from the Water than the final version does, and with a road that moves through winding sweeps rather than running fairly straight up to Bag End. Bagshot Row appears to be far on the east of Bag End, rather than slanting away westwards, while Bag End itself appears to sit at the foot of the Hill rather than near the top. A sign-post now shows west and east, but the weather vane indicates different directions. The Party Tree and the proper bridge across the Water are missing.
