Wall’s End

Encyclopedia of Arda Timeline
Years of the Trees First Age Second Age Third Age Fourth Age and Beyond

A cluster of low hills in East Beleriand, some miles to the west of Amon Ereb. They marked the eastern extent of the Andram, the Long Wall that ran eastward for many leagues from the hills around Nargothrond.


Notes

1

In the northeast of England a town named Wallsend lies near the point where Hadrian's Wall came to its eastern end. Tolkien's Ramdal (literally 'Wall's End') lay at the eastern end of the Long Wall (the Andram). These two ideas are so close in concept that some level of inspiration seems at least possible, though no direct evidence exists for such a connection.
