#07/19 - Orc-hold

Themed Builds run weekly, starting on Sunday, and last one week until the next one starts.

Reference:
The Return of The King – The Land of Shadow said:
The light, though no more than a grey dusk, was now enough for them to see that they were deep in the valley between the mountains. It sloped up gently northward, and at its bottom when the bed of a now dry and withered stream. Beyond its stony course they saw a beaten path that wound its way under the feet of the westward cliffs. Had they known, they could have reached it quicker, for it was a track that left the main Morgul-road at the western bridge-end and went down by a long stair cut in the rock to the valley's bottom. It was used by patrols or by messengers going swiftly to lesser posts and strong-holds north-away, between Cirith Ungol and the narrows of Isen-mouth, the iron jaws of Carach Angren. … So now they crossed the stony bed and took to the orc-path, and for some time they marched along it. The cliffs at their left were overhung, and they could not be seen from above; but the path made many bends, …
they went on for several miles, until the broadening of the road and the beginnings of a rough wall along its edge warned them that they were drawing near to another orc-hold.
...
After a mile or more they saw, huddled in a hollow at the cliff's foot, the orc-hold that hey had guessed was near at hand: a wall and a cluster of stone huts set about the dark mouth of a cave. There was no movement to be see, but the hobbits crept by cautiously, keeping as much as they could to the thorn-brakes that grew thickly at this point along both sides of the old water-course.
I would really like to see if you can build something matching this description. There is some basic terrain in your plot but that is far from being perfect, can you improve it?
