Old Road

The road running east through Eriador

A name sometimes used for the East-West Road that lead through Eriador to Rivendell, and especially for its eastern reaches beyond the town of Bree.


Notes

1

The fact that the Road led to the Ford of Bruinen strongly suggests that it was made after the founding of Rivendell in the mid-Second Age. Its most likely construction date would be after the foundation of Arnor at the end of the Second Age.
