(old) Murder Story

Murder story

This is Femstena Rör. Placed where the villages Årsta, Valsta and Sanda met. The stone in the middle is said to be from a grave. There are two diferent stories to what happened. In the first it says that 5 russian soldiers were killed and buried here back in 1719 by the local people. The russian fleet had attacked and the soldiers were on their way to Årsta Castle, but got lost in the forest. PRESS HERE to see the castle. The other version, dating to around 1600 is that a servant at the castle was ordered to murder his master by the lady at Årsta Castle. He failed, and as punishment he was paved in behind the brick wall in the castle cellar.
