The workers came from Värmland and Dalsland 300-400 km’s away. They brought their own horses which they cared for very well. The stable were close to the workers barrack. The boss – Esping – lived about 1 km away from the workers. A lady came every day to cook for him. She lived at a place called ”Råttekullen” about 2,5 km’s away. She walked every day.
