Stonewain Valley

The ancient way of the quarrymen of Gondor

A long straight valley in the eastern White Mountains. It was made in ancient days by the Men of Gondor, as a route from the quarries beneath Nardol to Minas Anor. By the time of the War of the Ring, it was forgotten by all but the Woses of the Drúadan Forest, who revealed it to the Rohirrim so that they could come to the aid of Gondor in the Battle of the Pelennor.
