In later years whole regions of Gondor, such as Calenardhon, were depopulated or evacuated. After being repaired with help of masons of Gondor, it came into the possession of Rohan and the master of Westfold dwelt there. The Rohirrim knew the fortress as Súthburg. This was due to it being the southern of the fortresses that guarded the Gap of Rohan and the Fords of Isen, Isengard being the other.
During the Dunlendings' occupation and Wulf's usurpation, Helm Hammerhand sought refuge there during the Long Winter in T.A. 2759. It was renamed Hornburg because a horn sounded from its tower could be heard in the whole Deep.
