02-Aug-2001 -- On the last day of our vacation in the South of Sweden we visited this confluence. When we approached the confluence by car it was clear that it was located on the grounds of a historic place, clearly a walled off manor.

At the gate a sign indicated no entrance for vehicles, so we proceeded on foot. It was quite a surprise to see that we entered a beautiful park, and we guessed that it was open to the public. On our way we passed a beautiful mansion where people actually seemed to be living. A bit further on we saw stylish buildings and stables.

As we got closer to the confluence we found out that it was in a grove of old trees between the mansion and the other buildings. The heavy foliage gave us some trouble getting a stable gps lock, but eventually we were right on the spot. Really a very nice confulence to visit!

Later I found this link to the mansion on the grounds of Ovesholm manor: http://www.algonet.se/~sylve_a/ovesholm.htm Regretfully it is in Swedish, a language I must try to master when I can find the time...

Coordinators note: The web page confirms that the manor grounds are indeed open to the public.
