The Swanfleet (or Nîn-in-Eilph in Sindarin) was a marshy area in Eriador.

Formed where the Glanduin (mistakenly labelled as "Swanfleet river" on some maps) joined the Mitheithel (Greyflood), the Swanfleet was effectively an inland delta, with uncertain streams and a very uncertain difference between land and water.

It was about fifty miles in length from west to east and over twenty-five miles from north and south.

History Edit

These marshes strongly resembled the Gladden Fields on the other side of Misty Mountains, and so many Stoors felt right at home here after their migration into Eriador. These Stoors remained here until the Great Plague nearly wiped them out, and the remainder then went to the Southfarthing of the Shire.

Near the Swanfleet was a ford over the Glanduin, from where led a road to the ruins of Ost-in-Edhil, the ruined city of Eregion.
