Welcome to Middle-Earth ☼ Lake-townThe Lake-town, also known as Esgaroth or “Esgaroth upon the Long Lake”, was a small settlement and community of Men in the northeastern part of mapped Middle-earth. The town was constructed entirely of wood and stands upon wooden pillars sunk into the bed of the Long Lake, south of the Lonely Mountain (Erebor) and east of Mirkwood. It seems that the town’s prosperity was built on trade between the Men, Elves and Dwarves of northern Middle-earth.
