Andrath was the point at which the Greenway or North-South Road passed between the Barrow-downs in the west and the South Downs in the east in what was very much like a mountain pass. Beyond Andrath the road met the Great East Road just west of the gates of Bree.
When the Nazgûl came north from Mordor to seek the Ring in the Shire at the end of the Third Age, their leader, the Witch-king of Angmar camped in Andrath. It is mentioned in the appendices of The Return of the King that it is likely that the Witch-king aroused the Barrow-wights in the nearby Barrow-downs while camped at Andrath.
Andrath was a Sindarin for 'Great Climb'.
