Geocache Description:

Helppo peruskätkö purkutuomion saaneella Niittykummun kappelilla.

Easy traditional cache at the to be demolished Chapel of Niittykumpu.

Espoon yhteinen kirkkovaltuusto on päättänyt purkaa kappelin, koska sen ilmanvaihto-ongelmien korjaamiskustannukset nousisivat liian korkeiksi.

Niittykummun kappeli on rakennettu talkoovoimin 1947 (arkkitehti O. Hansson). Tontti saatiin lahjoituksena puutarhuri Hugo Winbergiltä. Kappeli tunnettiin aluksi nimellä Gräsan kirkko. Kappeli toimi kirkkokäytössä vuoteen 1981, sen jälkeen siinä on ollut lähinnä nuorisotyötoimintaa.

Kappelissa on edelleen bänditreenitiloja, ja siellä järjestetään tilaisuuksia silloin tällöin. Se ei ole enää varattavissa kirkollisiin tilaisuuksiin, mutta katsothan silti ettei käyntisi häiritse kappelin toimintaa!

This chapel will be demolished in the near future, as it has some air quality problems that are too expensive to fix.

The chapel was built in 1947 (architect O. Hansson). It was used as a church until 1981. After that it has mainly been used for youth activities of the Olari Parish. While it is no longer available for ceremonial events, there is still occasional activity at the chapel. For example, there are still young bands practicing at the chapel.

If there happens to be an event going on while you search for the cache, please be considerate of their privacy!

Small prize for the FTF.
