Nardol was the third Beacon of Gondor. It stood on the broad end of a ridge of the White Mountains, and the guard station maintained there could create a huge signal fire when needed. It was well-stored with fuel and at need a great blaze could be lit. Its fire could be visible on a clear night even as far as the Halifirien (some 120 miles to the west). The guard of Nardol also protected the quarries.
