Lore

The Deeping-coomb is the name of the valley in the White Mountains within which Helm's Deep is located, with a river known as the Deeping-stream flowing through it from the Glittering Caves. Within the context of the Epic Battle it is the area enclosed by the White Mountains and the Deeping Wall, where the Battle of the Hornburg continued after the wall was overrun and destroyed by Saruman's forces on March 3 TA.[1][2] The word coomb, meaning 'deep valley', comes from the Old English word cumb, which in term comes from the Welsh word cwm.[3][4]
