General Information

The Bridge of Nimrodel used to span the river Nimrodel near its meeting with the Celebrant. It was part of the path from Khazad-dûm into Lothlórien, but by the time the Fellowship of the Ring came to the river the bridge had long broken down and disappeared.[1] Instead, on 15 January T.A. 3019[2] Legolas led the party down the deep-cloven bank to wade across the soothing waters.[1]
