Ruins of Hellion and the Forsaken Inn

The Forsaken Inn, "a day's journey east of Bree"[1] on the Great East Road, was for most of the Third Age the only inn between Bree and the Inn at the Last Bridge –– and after the latter's demise, the only inn between Bree and Rivendell. It seems to have survived in some form until the time of the War of the Ring at the end of the Third Age[2].

Once operated by a family of Breelanders, the Forsaken Inn was one of the few safe and neutral places at which an innocent traveler might rest on the road from Rivendell to Bree. The original Inn had started to fall apart by the end of the Third Age, but the Tinkers and Eglain often used to camp nearby and often reoccupied the not-permanently-inhabited buildings.
