Long Description:
Ironworks in Ulvhyttan which has been active for several hundred years. Now there are only ruins left.
The first known ironworks dates back to the 17th century when pig-iron was produced. This continued until May 1939 where the last blasting took place.
Over time, the buildings were renewed and made larger. When the ironworks closed, it had an annual production of 5,500 tons.
