Geocache Description:


Sedan 1600-talet till mitten på 1980-talet har det varit varv på Varvsholmen och hetat så sedan slutet på 1700-talet. Det tidigare namnet på ön var Stora Knarrön. Lilla Knarrön blev Laboratorieholmen. Kalmar varv var i början ett av landets största örlogsvarv innan Karlskrona tog över i slutet av 1600-talet. Därefter har varvet varit civilt. Kalmarsundsbåtarna som trafikerade Öland byggdes t.ex. här.
Sedan 1998 växer det  på Varvsholmen upp en ny stadsdel med bostäder och företag, men man har sparat en del byggnader och detaljer för att minna om varvsepoken. Ett industriminne som är värt att bevara.
Gömman ligger vid den gamla slipen med räls, vinch och kranar kvar.

Since the 1600s to the mid-1980s, it has been shipyard on Varvsholmen(shipyard islet). Kalmar shipyard were the top one of the country's biggest naval before Karlskrona took over in the late 1600s. Thereafter, the shipyard has been civil. The ferries operating Öland before the bridge was built here.
Since 1998, a new city district is growing up with housing and businesses, but some buildings and details remain to remember about the shipyard epoch. An industrial heritage that is worth preserving.
The cache is located at the old reparation wharf with the rails, vinch and cranes left.
