Geocache Description:

Dette er en hurtig multi med lidt grænsehistorie.

Cachen findes på N 54°48.BA(B-1) E009°19.(A+3)BA

Parkeringskoordinatet er nyttigt hvis du kommer ad motorvejen.
Det er også muligt at køre eller cykle hertil ad Simondysvej

I Bov Kommune var der 2 primære overgangssteder efter grænsedragningen i 1920, nemlig i Kruså, Padborg (Oksevejen) og - fra 1987 - Frøslev (Motorvejen) samt 5 mindre overgangssteder.
De lå ved Skomagerhus, i Rønsdam, Ellund/Frøslev Mosevej, Vilmkær samt her ved vejen til Handved Kirke. (Handewitt)
De mindre overgangssteder måtte alene benyttes af lokalbefolkningen på begge sider af grænsen efter særlig tilladelse, der blev givet ved en påtegning i rejsepasset. Det drejede sig navnlig om landmænd med jord på begge sider af grænsen, borgere med familie på tysk, henholdsvis dansk side samt kirkegængere, der havde et naturligt tilhørsforhold til kirker på den anden side af grænsen.
Beboerne i Frøslev havde på daværende tidspunkt et naturligt tilhørsforhold til Handved Kirke, hvorfor man benyttede denne kirkevej, (hvilket var det gamle navn) til at drage i kirke eller begrave sine døde på Handved Kirkegård, hvor man finder mange gravsteder af afdøde borgere fra Frøslev bl.a. hjemstavnsdigteren Karsten Thomsen, som også er stedt til hvile på Handved kirkegård.

*ENGLISH*
This is a quick multi with a little border history.

The cache found at N 54°48.BA(B-1) E009°19.(A+3)BA

The parking coordinate is useful if you come along the highway E45 north.
It is also possible to run or go by bicycle here via "Simondysvej"

In Bov Municipality, there were 2 main crossing points for the border demarcation in 1920, namely in Kruså, Padborg (Oksevejen). And - from 1987 - Frøslev (highway) and 5 smaller crossing points. They were Skomagerhus, Rønsdam, Ellund / Frøslev Mosevej, Vilmkær and here by the road to Handved Church. (Handewitt)
The smaller crossings was only to be used by local people on both sides of the border after special permission was given by an endorsement in the travel passport. Permission was given to farmers with land on both sides of the border, residents with family on German or Danish side and churchvisitors, who had a natural affinity for churches on the other side of the border.
Residents of Frøslev had at that time a natural affinity for Handved Church, therefore they used this "Kirkevej" ("road to church", which was the old name) to go to church or bury their dead on Handved Cemetery, where you can find many graves of deceased citizens from Frøslev including the native poet Karsten Thomsen, who is also laid to rest on Handved cemetery.
