Sarn Ford was the stone ford on the Brandywine River, on the far southern borders of the Shire.

It was guarded by the Rangers of the North. However, on 22 September T.A. 3018, the Rangers were driven out of Sarn Ford by the Ringwraiths.[citation needed]

Appearances in adaptationsEdit

Sarn Ford can be visited in The Lord of the Rings: War in the North, where it serves as a temporary camp for Halbarad's Rangers.


Sarn Ford was named by the Númenóreans after Sarn Athrad.[citation needed]
