Västerhaninge Parsonage Estate

Västerhaninge Parsonage Estate

This is the Parsonage Estate in Västerhaninge. For fifty years the vicar David Froste lived here. Today it's a private estate. I was there to take some photos as 100 new apartments will be built here over the next year. The young girl in the background is keeping an eye on the little dog that followed me around. It was barking like mad to scare me away...Didnt work. HERE is a big panorama I took.

Hoppas att prästgårn får vara kvar. Kommer att tänka på en frukost efter en julotta. Inbjuden av kyrkoherde Nils Bååthe, tillsammans med dom andra medlemmarna av kyrkorådet. Satt bredvid kyrkokamrer Tommy Scharin, som berättade hur han vunnit på premieobligationer. Nån i sällskapet nämnde hur otroligt det var hur många gånger han vunnit på sånt och på andra sätt. Efter jag flyttat till USA fick jag höra hur han åkt fast för att ha förskingrat från församlingen. Undrar vad som hänt med honom.

As far as I know Tommy Scharin now lives in Dalarna. His daughter who is married to a friend of my brother lives in Norrby.

Ahh ... found this one. I guess progress is progress. Doesn't mean have to like it!!

One hundred apartments is a lot of apartments. But what is gone can never be returned ...

The panorama is great. The whole area appears to be in the middle of bush. Must be the outskirts of a large town. I do hope there is adequate public transport and local shops, etc.

There closest neighbour today is the Mormon temple that was build back in the 1990s. If you follow the gravel road past the estate you will be at the Iron Age gravefield in Jordbro that i showed you a while back. If you look at the photos at flickr you can see on the map how the area looks, although they are not always updated.
