North Mithlond: Kingorrik
South Mithlond: Hearthseeker, Daktubalan, Benzathoth (with oversight from Fornad)
Location name: Mithlond (The Grey Havens)
“[the] Tower Hills… look [west] towards Mithlond in the Gulf of Lune where the grey ships lie.”
The Two Towers, LoTR Book 3, Ch 11, The Palantír
“Upon the shores of the Gulf of Lhûn the Elves built their havens, and named them Mithlond; and there they held many ships, for the harbourage was good. From the Grey Havens the Eldar ever and anon set sail, fleeing from the darkness of the days of Earth; for by the mercy of the Valar the Firstborn could still follow the Straight Road and return, if they would, to their kindred in Eressëa and Valinor beyond the encircling seas.”
The Silmarillion, Of the Rings of Power and the Third Age
Gates and harbour:
As they came to the gates Círdan the Shipwright came forth to greet them…
Then Círdan led them to the Havens, and there was a white ship lying, and upon the quay… stood a figure… awaiting them…
[the] sails were drawn up, and the wind blew, and slowly the ship slipped away down the long grey firth; and… went out into the High Sea and passed on into the West…
The Return of the King, LoTR Book 6, Ch 9, The Grey Havens
This is the general plan. There will be a road leading under the bridge, and the tops of the hills will be lined with large manors and palaces, while the lower areas will be generally dominated by shipyards and profession-related buildings. About half of the buildings will probably be empty due to elves departing for Aman in the Second/Third Ages.
Brown: Palace (these are rough location)
Grey: Docks and Shipyards
Blank space inside city: Filled with manors and houses and other stuff.
Martinez: “The havens would have fisheries and mills for their chief industrial shops, with warehouses to store goods and materials. But there would also have to be furriers, tanners, weavers, sailmakers, rope-makers, barrel-makers, coopers, and net-makers.” There would also have to be shoemakers, carpenters, etc.
General style we’re going for:
Just an idea for small canals and stuff, but the houses will overall be much larger and grand than shown here.
