Ford of Bruinen surroundings


Ford of Bruinen detail

The Ford of Bruinen or Ford of Rivendell was a flat bed of gravel set in a deep canyon of the Bruinen river.The flattening of the riverdale contributed to a usually low water level at this point and a number of flat islets added theirs in making the Bruinen fordable for Horses and even Carts and wagons, though at times, and in case of severe weather or long periods of rain the river still could be unpredictable and sudden floods or a climbing of the water level could make the ford temporarily unpassable, especially in fall or spring time.

In the east and west the ford connected the Great East Road while in the northwest a small gorge led almost unseen to the path of Imladris.
