Geocache Description:

Kyrkstallar/Kirkkotallit/Church stables


I Närpes finns en stor samling kyrkstall bevarade. De användes för att inhysa hästar under kyrkfärderna. De äldsta kyrkstallarna i Närpes är från 1700-talet, de yngsta från början av 1900-talet.

Närpiössä on iso joukko ainutlaatuista kirkkotallia, joissa kirkkovieraat ennen lepuuttivat hevosiaan jumapalveluksen aikana. Vanhimmat tallit ovat 1700-luvulta, uusimmat 1900-luvun alkupuolelta.

In Närpiö there is a big group of log houses which were built as stables so local people travelling all the way to Sunday church could keep them safe. The oldest are from the 1700-century and the newest from beginning of 1900-century.

Podcast :
More interesting information you get if you listen to the podcast from Mark Wiltshear when he discuss with guide Marianne Winter; podcast. Discussion about the church stables is found in between 13:30 - 25:00 min in the podcast. The podcast was made in january 2018 and I higly recommend listening to it !

The cache is easy to approach because it is close by the road. If there is a lot of snow it might be difficult to find the cache.
Cache originally contained a pencil, logbook, matchbox and earplugs. It can be a little bit tricky to pull/push out!
