Sirion’s Vale

The wide valley of the river Sirion

The shallow lands that lay either side of Sirion, more commonly called the Vale, or Vales, of Sirion. They ran roughly north to south, and separated East and West Beleriand from one another. Though in principle the name 'Sirion's Vale' might apply to any part of the long river valley, our only recorded use of the term applies it to the lands between Doriath and Brethil, running southwards from the inflow of Teiglin as far as Aelin-uial.
