The Old Ford was the point where the Old Forest Road crossed the River Anduin, about forty miles downriver from the Carrock.[1] In older times, the river was crossed by a stone bridge here, but by the end of the Third Age, the bridge had long since disappeared, and the crossing was no more than a simple ford.[2]
