Bagshot Row was the row of Hobbit-holes that were delved into Hobbiton Hill beneath Bag End. The Gamgee Family lived at Number 3, Bagshot Row.[1] Their neighbour was Daddy Twofoot.[note 1] The dwellings had gardens and earthwalls made of the earth removed during the excavation of Bag End.[2]

During the War of the Ring and the occupation of the Shire, Saruman had it torn up, and it had become a yawning sand and gravel pit. After the Battle of Bywater the destruction was replaced by a new row called, simply, New Row (in the town of Bywater it became a joke to refer to it as Sharkey's End).[3]
