"A mile or two further south they hastily crossed the great road from the Brandywine Bridge; they were now in the Tookland and bending south-eastwards they made for the Green Hill Country."

The Brandywine Bridge as depicted in The Lord of the Rings Online.

The Brandywine Bridge, originally known as the "Bridge of Stonebows", was a bridge on the Great East Road crossing the Brandywine River.

History Edit

It was built some time before TA 1601 by the Numenoreans of Arnor.[citation needed] King Argeleb II allowed the Hobbits to settle in the Shire if they kept the bridge in good repair and sped his messengers on their way. The only other ways to cross the river were at Bucklebury Ferry, the Sarn Ford, or by swimming across.

On their journey to Bree, Frodo, Sam, Merry, and Pippin did not take the bridge, for the Black Riders were thought to be looking on the Great East Road for Frodo and the One Ring.
