365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 62: the Isen

The River Isen (‘Iron River’) was a river which flowed from Nan Curunír at the southern feet of the Misty Mountains and ran about three hundred miles west until it reached the Sea. It served as the western boundary of Rohan. It was not bridged, but instead crossed by the Fords of Isen which lay roughly thirty miles south of Isengard. 

During the War of the Ring, the Ents diverted the flow of the River in order to flood Isengard.
