Geocache Description:




A. Jiruš, Brána ke vstupu do obory. Akvarel, 1859


 V druhe polovine 18. stoleti byla Lanska obora na severu obehnana kamennou zdi, aby mela zver ztizeny pristup do poli ve smecenskem panstvi, kde se stavala koristi pytlaku. Zed se tahla od hajovny Pusta Dobra az k budovam Lesni spravy v Luzne. Se stavbou se zapocalo v r. 1777 a prace byly skonceny v r. 1778. Stavebni kamen poskytovaly okolni opukove lomy a za spojovaci maltu byl pouzivan jil ci pouha hlina. Zed byla asi 2 m vysoka; dlouhá 10520 sáhu (19951 m); s melkymi zaklady, v pravidelnych rozestupech zesilena masivnimi piliri. Jeji vybudováni stalo 5 742 zlatych. Zbyvajicich 15 626,5 sahu
(29 635,407 m) obvodu obory bylo ohrazeno novym drevenym plotem. Oploceni bylo tedy dlouhe celkem 26 146,5 sahu,
(49 586,418 m).

Tam, kde zed krizila verejne silnice, byly v roce 1859 postaveny vysoke klenute brany (lisy). Nahore na klenbach byvaly litinove jeleni hlavy s mohutnym parozim, obracene dovnitr do obory. Lanska brana se klenula na jiznim konci obce pres cestu na Beroun. Dne 8. 4. 1959 byla bohuzel strzena. Hajovna cp. 53, ktera byla kvuli obsluze vrat puvodne zrizena (na mape z toku 1929 je vedena jako Lanska lisa), stoji doposud, ale byla uz kdysi davno stavebne upravena (za sve vzalo jeji razovite sindelove oblozeni nejen strechy, nybrz i stitu a obvodovych sten) a slouzi nyni jako rodinny domek. Oborni klenuta brana Vasirovska lisa pres silnici Lany – Krivoklat vzala za sve 5. 7. 1958. V cervenci roku 1974 pak byla zborena i prilehla hajovna cp. 52. Jedina brana, která vydrzela do nasich casu, protoze neprekazi silnicnimu provozu, stoji v Mysi dire, ale jeji litinove jeleni parozi bohuzel kdosi neznamy odcizil.

In the second half of the 18th century, the Lany Game Park ( Lanskaobora ) was surrounded by a stone walll on the North to make the Smecno manor difficult for animals to access where the animals fell prey to poachers. The wall extended from the gamekeeper’s lodge Pusta Dobra to the buildings of the Forest Administration situated in Luzna village. The construction began in 1777 and works ended in 1778. Nearby marl quarries provided the building stone, and clay or just loam was used as a mortar. The wall was approximately 2 meter high; it was 10,520 “sáh” six feet (=19,951 meters) long; with shallow foundations reinforced by massive pillars in regular distances. It cost 5,742 gold coins to build the wall. The remaining 15,626.5 six feet (=29,635.407 meter) of the game park line was surrounded by a new wood fencing. The fencing was hence 26,146.5 six feet (=49.586,418 meter) long.

Where the wall was crossing or intersecting the public roads, high vaulted gates (“lisy”) were built in 1859. On the top of the vault, there used to be cast-iron deer heads with powerful horns, turned inward the game park. The Lany Gate (Lanskabrana) was situated at the Southern end of the municipality over the road to Beroun. Unfortunately, the gate was pulled down on 8 April 1959. The gamekeeper’s lodge description number 53 which was originally established to attend the gate (on the 1929 map the lodge is marked as Lanska lisa) is still standing there. However, once a long time ago, the structure of the lodge underwent modifications (its shindle cladding - not only of the gable roof, but also of the enclosure walls, was destroyed). Currently, the gamekeeper’s lodge serves as a family house. The vaulted Vasirovska lisa game deer park gate spanning the road LanyKrivoklat was destroyed on 5 July 1958. In July 1974, the neighbouring gamekeeper’s house no. 52 was torn down, too. So, Mysidira (Mousehole) is the only gate that is still standing as it is not hampering traffic. Unfortunately, cast –iron deer horns were stolen by a person unknown.
