Oxebo water powered sawmill

Show map

Up in the north of Hallingeberg lies an old water saw. At the brook between Södersjön and Hunsalasjön which creates a small waterfall. It is no big and powerful waterfall that has been the driving force for decades but big enough to drive the big water wheel around and generate energy through.

The water wheel on the creek between Sörsjön and Hunsalasjön had been spinning around and produced energy for many years before the newer energy forms emerged and were taken into use. The water wheel was the driving force until about 1948 when it broke down, and thus the water powered saw at Oxebo ended.
