Tolkien's Shire by John Ezard includes extracts from his 1966 interview with Tolkien in which he talks about his early life at Sarehole and its influence on his stories.

See pp.4-6.

The extracts are slightly abbreviated from those printed in the Oxford Mail in 1966 - the main omission being a reference to the two millers at Sarehole going straight into Farmer Giles.
