Same view point as the previous photo but taken a few years ago.

Kistefossen
The Kiste(chest)river empties out into Lakssjø, and there is a stone bridge over the river. Here in the river the salmon were caught in special FLETTA KASSER which were called chests. This is why the place is called Kiste (chest).
The salmon fishing stopped in 1650 when the owner of Fritzøe in Larvik built a pond in Farris, and the salmon were closed out.
But it’s still a nice area for fishing and swimming.

See where this was taken on an aerial photo.
