The Langwell (not to be confused with the Langflood), is a river in Rhovanion. It flows down eastwards from the Misty Mountains in western Elderslade, though its upper stretches are inaccessible do to impassable terrain. From there, it flows into the Dvergvát, and then on into the western fall of the Twainmantle. The Langwell is one of the two main rivers, along with Greylin, that meets in the northern Wells of Langflood to form the beginnings of the Anduin.

In T.A. 1977 Frumgar led the Éothéod from the middle to the upper part of the Vales of Anduin, to escape from the growing shadow of Dol Guldur and to take advantage of the fall of Angmar in 1975. Upon their arrival they built their capital city of Framsburg (named after Frumgar's son Fram) between the Langwell and the Greylin. The Éothéod left the vicinity of the Langwell in T.A. 2510 when they became the Rohirrim, settling in Rohan.
