ABC Wednesday, N for Nyvang
When my sister, her husband and I stayed in Denmark in 2003, we visited Nyvang with our Danish friend. Here we had lunch with him in Nyvang park.
On the map you see the two crosses showing the location of Nyvang
This park is situated on the Isle of Sjaelland/ Zealand( this has nothing to do with New Zealand, which was named after the Dutch province of Zeeland). The Co-operative Village Nyvang in Denmark is a historical centre of experience located in aesthetic surroundings five kilometres from Holbæk.It covers the period from 1870 to 1950. Those were the years that the the co-operative movement had its heyday.
We first saw the mainbuilding, then after a lovely walk the dairy, the smithy and finally the farm, which you can see on the two last photos. My sister, brother-in-law and I were the guests of honour and got coffee in the livingroom. It was there that we met our friend's cousin, who performed the part of farmer's wife.
This year she and her husband, who is the manager of the park, came to see me here. We went to Gouda to see the church. Last year they came here as well and then we went to the windmills.
With thanks to Denise Nesbitt, who created ABC.We started a new round of the fascinating meme of ABC. For more interesting ABC posts click on the logo in the sidebar or Here. This week we are looking for words beginning with N.
