Stonyford

Stonyford, (Stánford in the language of the Vales) is the southernmost settlement of the Beornings beyond the Old Forest Road. Here a stone tower once stood, and a ford to cross the river. Of the tower only a pile of stones remain, and the ford has long gone.

There has not been a ford at Stonyford for hundreds of years. The river was passable here once, but no longer.

The tumbledown pile of stones atop a low hill were once a watchtower that guarded the road in a time when kings ruled the land. The village remains, though; a few wooden huts that cluster around the foot of the mound by the river. The folk here survive by fishing and hunting, as they have done for many generations.
