Westemnet

The western plain of Rohan

The grasslands of Rohan that spread between the rivers Isen and Entwash, marking the western part of the land of the Mark. The most important of Rohan's settlements and fortifications lay to the south of the Westemnet, where the White Mountains rose up from the plain. Helm's Deep was among these, and to the south-east was the seat of the Lords of the Mark, Edoras itself.
