Nardol beacon from viewing platform on northern end of summit


Nardol is a landmark within Taur Drúadan in Far Anórien. [47.3S, 30.5W]


This is one of the northern line of the beacons of Gondor, being the third from Minas Tirith.


Located on the end of a high ridge, originally part of the Drúadan Forest, but long deprived of trees by masons and quarriers who came up the Stonewain Valley, Nardol was manned by a guard, who also protected the quarries. It was well-stored with fuel and at need a great blaze could be lit.
Built upon this high summit, hence the name Nardol -- "Fire-hilltop." The guard stationed here could build a greate blaze which, on a clear night, could be seen at Halifirien some 120 miles to the west.
