Storsjöbygden: History, Ruins and Views

Storsjöbygden
some weeks ago I went out and photographed some old ruins and stuff around the region I live in,
wich is named by our lake. "Storsjön" all the places are marked out on the map. Brunflo, Marieby & Sunne

Sound!

Brunflo Keep
In the 1170's a church was built in Brunflo, shortly after they built a keep that still today stands hoovering magnificently in the sky.
In the western wall of the keep there is a staricase, the medival spiral staircase.
the Keep is 30 metres tall. the keep was cast in limestone gathered from the field, the wooden cap was built in the 1890's on a model from a previous one.
The medival church was torn down in the 1770's and replaced.

Soaring high


Windows for the staircase


façade holder


Entrance


The medival staircase was not built for a human or modern size!


You can see the entrance to the medival staircase down there


What it possibly looked like in the old days.


Keeps are unusual in the northern parts of sweden. In jämtland they have found atleast one more, the Sunne Keep ruin.

Sunne
church and keep was built year 1178 on a misson from the norweigan king Sverre Sigurdsson.
According to myth it was built in memory of the battle at the ice of lake Storsjön outside Sunne,
between the Jämtlandish farmers and Sverre's norweigan soldiers.
The church and keep is believed to have become a ruin a few years after the priest Backmans death 1848 as a result of the locals' destruction.
There used to be medival paintings on the inner walls, jesus' entry to Jeruslem and such, fragements are still intact on the ruin.

Entrance to the left


I wonder what it would look like with a roof?


Marieby church ruin
in the 13th or 14th century a small chapell called Jungfru Marias hus "Virgin Marys house" orr Den heliga Marias Kyrka "The church of holy(saint?) mary".
Also a spring near by is named by the virgin mary, thus she is belived to have given name to the while area.
anyways, on the 19th of november 1879 during a preech the wooden roof caught fire and the church burnt down.
it was lateron forgotten and rediscovered and restaurated in the 1950's and this is

What it used to look like.


what it looks like today.


It seems that weddigs are still held in it,


Ex-window


I like this red-thing that growns on ruins


outside from the front


Extra pano:


I Hope you enjoyed the thread

I enjoyed it! Jämtland must be rich on both Swedish and Norwegian history.

Thanks for that insightful tour. Even the ruins look good in Scandinavia.
