The Deeping

The guarded vale of the Deeping-stream

Map of the Deeping
The valley of the Deeping (somewhat conjectural)1
The valley of the Deeping (somewhat conjectural)1

The deep valley in the northern White Mountains where Helm Hammerhand took refuge from the Dunlendings during the Long Winter, and was afterwards more commonly called 'Helm's Deep'.


Notes

1

The region around the Deeping is not mapped in detail, so there are some conjectural elements to this map. In particular, the location of Grimslade is not known, beyond the fact that it lay somewhere in the Westfold. The course of the Deeping-stream after it left the valley is also unknown, but realistically it must surely have emptied into Isen, which was the nearest major river by some considerable distance.
