Vik’s mill

Show map

The area features wild and magnificent countryside.

The geologically significant Almesåkra formation, which appears above the surface here, contains largely clay slate, quartzite and conglomerates. Clay slate was used in the 19th century for making bricks. The remains of the brick ovens can still be seen today. Storkvarn river, which runs through the gorge, has been dammed for mill use at Vikskvarn and at Storkvarn.
