Geocache Description:


Kostelik Marnice pohled ze hrbitova




Puvodni kostelik sv. Jana Krtitele je velmi stareho zalozeni. V pisemnych pramenech je pripominan sice az na sklonku 14. stoleti, kdy patronatni pravo k nemu drzel sam rimský cisar a cesky kral Karel IV., ale je zrejme, ze byl zbudovan na zakladech starsich. Po zaniku osady Ujezdec nad Kladnem, k niz kostelik nalezel a ktera byla znicena patrne v husitských valkach, se kostel sv. Jana stal osamelym objektem. S pocatkem dolovani uhli v okoli Drine a se vzrustem poctu horniku kostelik opet ozil a stal se poutnim mistem v case hornickych svatku a slavnosti, stejne jako zadusnich msi za horniky, kteri zahynuli pri praci v podzemi. Tradice hornickych pouti a slavnosti "U Jana" dosahla vrcholu v obdobi prvni ctvrtiny 20. stoleti.

Ke smutne udalosti zde doslo 12. zari 1944. Zdejsi les slouzil pri naletech spojeneckych letadel jako ukryt pro zamestnance kladenske Poldovky. Pri jednom z naletu doslo k tomu, ze po letadlech vystrelili z kulometu prislusnici fasisticke mladeze Hitlerjugend. Dve letadla se od svazu odpojila a svrhla nekolik bomb na tento les. Vysledkem bylo nekolik desitek mrtvych a velky pocet ranenych, kteri zcela zaplnili tehdejsi kladenskou nemocnici. Tuto tragickou udalost pripomina nedaleko v lese pamatnik temto obetem..

Sportovci se mohou smele zucastnit Svatojanskeho behu na 7500 metru,ktery porada Mararonsky klub Kladno.Letos 8.unora startuje jiz tricaty rocnik.
