The White Towers

Three Elf-towers of immemorial age were still to be seen on the Tower Hills beyond the western marches [of the Shire]. They shone far off in the moonlight. The tallest was furthest away, standing alone upon a green mound. The Hobbits of the Westfarthing said that one could see the Sea from the top of that tower; but no Hobbit had ever been known to climb it..” -The Lord of the Rings, Prologue, Concerning Hobbits




This is ArdaCraft's recreation of The White Towers.

The White Towers were built on the Emyn Beraid (The Tower Hills) by the High King of the Noldor, Gil-galad, as a gift to the High King of Gondor and Arnor, Elendil, nearly three thousand years before the events of The Lord of the Rings.

They were sometimes the destination of pilgrimage by wandering companies of Elves who would gaze towards Valinor through the palantír. Such a band, led by Gildor Inglorion, met Frodo, Sam, and Pippin in the Woody End of the Shire on 24 September T.A. 3018 whilst they were on their way to the towers.

In September 3021, the Last Riding of the Keepers of the Rings, including Frodo and Sam, passed the White Towers on their way to the Grey Havens.



The White Towers forms part of a larger project which seeks to recreate Middle-earth in its entirety. Credit goes to the entire community of builders for helping out.

The White Towers can be viewed from above on ArdaCraft's dynmap. There is no download avaliable, but ArdaCraft is a non whitelisted server which anyone is welcome to come and explore, provided they have installed our modpack first.
