A mighty stone wall in the middle of the forest

The Great Wall of Smisserum is located along the East Coast trail about 500 meters from Smisserum towards Lilla Höckhult. The name was maybe coined by the wanderers who got a vision of the mighty stone wall in the middle of the forest. The stone wall was built over the course of several years by the farmer Sven August Larsson and his older sons who moved here in 1903. The size is markedly different from other walls in the area and the wall length is more than a hundred meters. Unfortunately, some of the wall has been removed.
