Netherlands Town With Tolkien Character Street Names

“Can you give me directions to the closest grocery store?” “Yes, go one mile down Saruman, make a right on Palantir, and a left on Elrond.”

That's a conversation you could actually have if you lived in Geldrop. The Dutch town has a population of 28,000 people and has street names that would be right at home in J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth.

They've taken names from the Lord of the Rings as well as The Hobbit. You could live on Fangorn or even Thorin.

It's a fun idea, but I have to wonder how often street signs get stolen.
