Gorningen dam 01 02 2014

Gorningen dam 01 02 2014
The place is today in frequent use for bathing, recreation, outdoor concerts, evening bonfires, etc. The boat house was restored by Siljan historical society and was reopened on 20th September 2008 after 3.5 years of volunteers work and is now a village hall with banquet facilities (available for hire) and showroom for the Society. Good parking available too as it is a very popular place during the summer months.
The Boathouse is right by Gorningen Dam on Kiste road in scenic surroundings. The boat house was used for storing the tug until 1969. The tug brought logs to the dam from where they were sent to Laksjø via the log flume, which is still in place.
There is also old welfare housing for dam workers and an old millstone and other heritage sites.

The boathouse is the biggest one on the left.
It was starting to snow again while I was here. I was lucky though as a few hours later it turned to rain which would eventually continue for the next 48 hours and lay waste to all the pretty white stuff :-(
