Geocache Description:

I samarbete med Turistbyrån HÖÖR

Hammarforsen anlades 1952 av prosten H B Hammar som var farfar till Sveriges före detta ärkebiskop K G Hammar, som är uppvuxen här i byn.
Badplatsen var ämnad för bygdens barn, så att de hade möjlighet att lära sig simma.
Det var barnen i byn som började kalla stället för Hammarforsens brus.
Det sägs att ingen annan stans lärde barnen sig simma så fort som i Norra Rörum, det beroende på att vattnet var så kallt.
Numera är det sockengillet som vårdar och driver Hammarforsen, byns rekreationsplats.
Passa på att grilla och njut en stund, eller varför inte ta ett dopp.
Ni behöver ju inte ligga i så länge.

Hammarforsen, the Rapid of Hammar, was constructed in 1952 by the dean HB Hammar, grandfather of KG Hammar, the previons archbishop of Sweden, who was raised in this village.
The bathingplace was aimed for the children of the region. This made it possible for the children to learn how to swim. It was the children of the village that started to call the place “Hammarforsens brus” The Murmur of the Rapid of Hammar.
It is told that nowhere else the children learned how to swim as fast as in Norra Rörum, this because the water was so cold.
Nowadays it is “sockengillet” the parish recreationgroup that runs and takes care of “Hammarforsen”, the recreation area of the village.
Why not grill a sausage and enjoy yourselves. Or why not take a bath. You don´t have to stay in the water to long.
