Nardol was one of the Warning beacons of Gondor, the third from east to west.

Description

Nardol was built at the end of a long ridge which was originally part of Drúadan Forest, though masons and quarriers had long since cleared the area of trees. The beacon was manned by a guard who also protected the nearby quarries.[1]

Nardol was well-supplied with wood, and on a clear night could be seen as far away as the westernmost beacon Halifirien, some hundred and twenty miles away.[1]

During the Siege of Gondor, the beacon was lit to signal Rohan for aid.[2]

Etymology

Nardol is Sindarin for "fire-hill".[1]
