General Information
DestroyedLong before the War of the Ring

The Bridge of Nimrodel once spanned the river Nimrodel near its meeting with the Celebrant. It was part of the path from Khazad-dûm into Lothlórien. By the time the Fellowship of the Ring came to the river on 15 January T.A. 3019,[1], the bridge had long broken down.[2] In the absence of a bridge, Legolas led the party down the deep-cloven bank to wade across the soothing waters.[2]
