Bridge of Nimrodel

A lost bridge of Lórien

A bridge that spanned the Nimrodel, a stream that fed the river Celebrant that flowed through Lórien. At one time famed for its beauty, the Bridge was broken and lost at some point, apparently long before the end of the Third Age, though it's not entirely clear when or how the Bridge was lost. Its connection to Nimrodel perhaps implies that it was abandoned at the time of the awakening of Durin's Bane, when Nimrodel the Elf-maid (after whom the stream was named) left her home with many other Silvan Elves. This took place more than a thousand years before the War of the Ring, and by the close of the Third Age no trace of the storied Bridge remained.
