Oslättsfors is one of Gästriklands many villages that was once a centre for ironmaking. It was founded in 1697 and was in operation until 1880 producing nails and other forged items. There are many well preserved buildings. Most famous is the church which appears to be floating in the lake.

Oslättsfors är en av Gästriklands många byar som var ett centrum för järnframställning. Det grundades i 1697 och var i drift fram till 1880. Spik och andra smidda produkter tillvarkades. Det finns många välbevarade byggnader. Mest känd är kyrkan som verkar flytar i sjön.

Now about the cache itself. It is a plastic box (12 x 18 x 7cm) wrapped in a black plastic bag.

Good luck!
