The granary village

This is a group of wooden buildings that stand close together on both sides of the path and mostly date from after 1850.

Most of these granaries are raised up on stone or wooden supports, which rest on stone slabs that prevents rodents from entering.

The walls of the granaries are closely joined together. To protect the contents from rodents and other unwanted visitors, the ventilation gaps in the walls were fitted with bars. The main section of the building is divided into several spaces depending on the number of owners. Each owner has their own entrance with a lockable door. This enabled farming families to store their supplies close to where they lived: long-lasting rye bread, dried meat, sausage, grain and other possessions.

Some of these granaries also have a lower brick section, which was normally used as a stall for small livestock or pigs. The space in between was used as an open storage room protected from the rain where freshly cut timber could be dried.
