1. Distances in Beleriand

Distances in Beleriand - all measured from Menegroth; when a reference is to any feature that is too large to be counted as a point, the distance has been measured to the point nearest Menegroth, unless otherwise indicated. Distances have been rounded off to the nearest whole mile. Where roads exist, I've followed the road. In other cases I assumed that following a river, where possible, would be the most logical way to travel. River lengths are also given. References: Silmarillion 2nd edition The Atlas of Middle-earth - Karen Wynn Fonstad; revised edition, 1994 NB. Since I didn't want to break the spine of the Atlas, it may be necessary to add five miles or so to locations to the west of the Pass of Anach
