Lotho Sackville-Baggins tears down Sandyman's Mill (estimated date)

Event Type: Military/Strategic

Age: 3rd Age - Ring War

Date: October 5, 3018

Description:

'It all began with Pimple, as we call him,' said Farmer Cotton; ... It soon came out that he already did own a sight more than was good for him; and he was always grabbing more.... He'd already bought Sandyman's mill before he came to Bag End, seemingly.

The Return of the King, LoTR Book 6, Ch 8, The Scouring of the Shire

'Take Sandyman's mill now. Pimple knocked it down almost as soon as he came to Bag End. Then he brought in a lot o' dirty-looking Men to build a bigger one and fill it full o' wheels and outlandish contraptions. Only that fool Ted was pleased by that, and he works there cleaning wheels for the Men, where his dad was the Miller and his own master. Pimple's idea was to grind more and faster, or so he said. He's got other mills like it. But you've got to have grist before you can grind; and there was no more for the new mill to do than for the old.'

The Return of the King, LoTR Book 6, Ch 8, The Scouring of the Shire
