Map of Beleriand and the Lands to the North
Does anything from The Silmarillion take place there? Can we point to places on the map that exist in both epics? I was about to answer in depth, but then an image search showed me an existing answer onlinethough there’s quite a bit of extraneous text there. I’ll borrow the maps from that blog:. These are the same Ered Luin, Blue mountains.
Beleriand, before it sank into the sea, was westwards of where the Shire is in the Third Age.
For all things Tolkien, The Lord Of The Rings, The Hobbit, Silmarillion, and more …
To supplement Anver’s answer, here is another map, sourced from History of Middle Earth 7 The Treason of Isengardwhich contains an extended account of the first LotR map:.
To quote from CT’s note regarding the Unfinished Tales redrawing:. Some way to the west of it was a larger island named Tol Fuin, which must be the highest part of Taur-nu-Fuin. Although Christopher Tolkien notes that “the fact is nowhere referred to”, it actually is; in HoME 7 Treason of IsengardChapter 6 Council of Elrond 1 text of “a single sheet of heleriand found in isolation” reads in part:.
CT confirms in a footnote that this “single sheet” was only discovered after he had written the Unfinished Tales note; hence his original statement now known to be incorrect. These are a strange, unfriendly people, remnant of the Forodwaith, Men belerriand far-off days, accustomed to the bitter colds of the realm of Morgoth.
Indeed those colds linger still in that region, though they lie hardly more than a hundred leagues north of the Shire. From this it may be inferred that the remnants of Utumno are under the Icebay of Forochel, giving you another correspondance between the LotR maps and the tales of the Silmarillion.
In the Silmarillion we also read that after the Battle of the Powers which resulted in the first Chaining of Melkor:. In that time the shape of Middle-earth was changed, and the Great Sea that sundered it from Aman grew wide and deep; and it broke in upon the coasts and made a deep gulf to the southward. Of bfleriand the Bay of Balar was the chief This seems to indicate that the Great Gulf is the Bay of Belfalas, assuming that it’s size in the First Age was comparable to it’s size in the Third.
And it came to pass after many years of journeying in this manner that the Eldar took their course through a forest, and they came to a great river, wider than any they had yet seen; and beyond it were mountains whose sharp horns seemed to pierce the realm of the stars.
This river, it is said, was even the river which was after called Anduin the Great, and was ever the frontier of the west-lands of Middle-earth.
Little is known of the wanderings of the Nandor, whom he led away down Anduin: It is said that the mounds of Tyrn Gorthad, as the Barrowdowns were called of old, are very ancient, and that many were built in the days of the old world of the First Age by the forefathers of the Edain, before they crossed the Blue Mountains into Beleriand, of which Lindon is all that now remains.
The fully drawn bit is the north-west corner of Middle-earth in the Third Age, the faintly drawn part is Beleriand. It’s worth noting that the southern coast of the drowned lands in this map is conjectural it can only ever be as Tolkien never mapped it but consistent with “Many lesser bays were made between the Great Gulf and Helcaraxe far in the north” in the Silmarillion.
The general assumption is ma the “Great Gulf” beleriadn the Bay of Belfalas.

I’ll borrow the maps from that blog: Beletiand is a map of Beleriand, in the first age.
Conveniently, the Blue Mountains are circled: And now a map of Middle Earth in the third age: There are several things mentioned bwleriand hinted at in the Silmarillion about the eastern area – the Elves awoke somewhere in the east and passed a lot of land on the way to Beleriand, and Men also came from there – but the narrative itself for the first age takes place in Beleriand.
The pictures don’t work for me.
Could you make them a bit smaller? To supplement Anver’s answer, here is another map, sourced from History of Middle Earth 7 The Treason of Isengardwhich contains an extended account of the first LotR map: To quote from CT’s note regarding the Unfinished Tales redrawing: Although Christopher Tolkien notes that “the fact is nowhere referred to”, it actually is; in HoME 7 Treason of IsengardChapter 6 Council of Elrond 1 text of “a single sheet of manuscript found in isolation” reads in part: Taur na Fuin earlier name became an island In the Silmarillion we also read that after the Battle of the Powers which resulted in the first Chaining of Melkor: The Great March of the Eldar also passes through some well-known locations: And also of the wanderings of the Nandor: You’re welcome, but Anver should get the accept.
He did answer first, and his answer does cover what you need to know; treat mine as supplementary if you wish. And to supplement their answers, a map from the LotR Wikia: Jimmy Shelter commented quite rightly: MadTux 3, 19 Beleriand was to the west of the middle earth we all love.
This image is just someone’s guess in Photoshop.
Several of the answers to this question identify the common areas in the maps Tol Fuin, Tol Himling. This image places both of them incorrectly and therefore gives the impression that Beleriand is much bigger than it would have been.
