The Dwellers of Old Swanfleet Item Locations
Not wanting to repeat myself, I haven’t used the Discover a… wording found in the deed log. Instead, I’ve kept it simple and just used the item name. Hope this helps!
Note: The screenshots of the items in the world can be enlarged by clicking/tapping on them. The maplets don’t need that (I don’t think), so they’re not interactive in the same way.
1. Old Cornerstone
There are many cornerstones in the ruins, but this one is yours. Historically cornerstones were laid first to help get the size and angles right.
Apparently in Caras Gelebren’s case, they are among the last stones standing.
2. Curious Pendant
Funnily enough, this Curious Pendant was left as a treasure hunt from one lover to another. And now you’re on a hunt too.
It can be found on a tree near the river South of Caras Gelebren before you cross the water. Also, at least during Bullroarer, the pendant was invisible. Turn floaty names on to see it, especially if it’s daytime.
Also, a huge thank you to @MinstrelbyNight for finding this one for me (and you)! Here’s the tweet that saved a shred of my sanity!
3. Engraved Stone
The Engraved Stone seems to be another invisible item, at least during my Bullroarer run. I’ll recheck this once Before the Shadow goes live. It can be found on the path from Enedwaith to Swanfleet.
If you began your adventures in Swanfleet, be careful not to stray too far down that path. I accidentally did one time and it…did not end well!
4. Well-used Fishing Rod
The Well-used Fishing Rod is totally the easiest of the items in the Dwellers of Old Swanfleet deed! South of Glyn Helyg at the river’s edge, is a waterwheel.
It’s from here that you’ll find quests that eventually lead you to the village. The Fishing Rod is laid out, nice and obviously, on the wooden planks next to the waterwheel.
5. Cache of Old Notes
On one of the islands of Wadewater stands the ruin of Gwâl Cruban. This location features in The Perils of Swanfleet Deed. The Cache of Old Notes is found in this ruin.
The quickest route here is to go North from Lhan Garan.
Incidentally a Treasure Cache is nearby too. This is for a separate deed, which I have started but I have not located all the caches for it yet!
6. Collection of Poetry
The Collection of Poetry is at Tham Lasgol. But it’s not quite that simple!
You’ll need to find a flight of steps leading to a small, domed watch-platform. The steps go up the hill Tham Lasgol rests against.
It may be easier to use your “find nearest/next item” hotkey then head in that direction. Do whatever works for you.
7. Rusted Dagger
The Rusted Dagger is not that far away from Mossward. It may then be the first item in the Dwellers of Old Swanfleet deed that you discover it.
It was hard to make an accurate maplet here. That’s because you don’t “leave” Mossward officially until you’re someway outside the surrounding fence. I’ll see if it’s close enough that I can put it on the Mossward map, rather than the Swanfleet one. But I can’t action that until Before the Shadow is live.
The numbers on the map match those next to each of the items above.

The Stories Behind the Items
If you take time to look at deed entries, you can find extra writing or storytelling that wasn’t obvious. All the Dwellers of Old Swanfleet items have something new to read – especially the Rusted Knife. You can read all of them on LOTRO-Wiki.
TL;DR The Dwellers of Swanfleet Deed is Worth the Effort
This deed only has seven items on it. Between the LOTRO-Wiki team, @MinstrelByNight and myself we found all of them to help you. But please enjoy the journey and taking in the lore and history of the area. The Dwellers of Old Swanfleet still left their mark on the world, even after all their trials and defeats. If that isn’t a life lessons, I don’t know what is.
