Numedal – Rollag

Med et folketall på bare 1387 mennesker er Rollag kommune er enda mindre enn Flesberg, men den ligger altså i samme dalføret – Numedal.  Det er bare to ‘tettsteder’ i kommunen: Rollag og Veggli, hvorav Veggli faktisk er det største.

With a population of only 1387 people, the community of Rollag is even smaller than Flesberg, but it is located in the same valley – ‘Numedal’.  There is only two main settlements in Rollag: Rollag and Veggli, the latter being the largest of the two.

Picture 486Veggli kirke er en såkalt ‘langkirke’ fra 1859, oppført i tre og med plass til 160 mennesker.

Veggli church is a so called ‘long church’, erected in wood in 1859 and seats 160 people.

Picture 481Rådhuset i Rollag er et relativt beskjedent hus sammenlignet med andre kommunale ‘slott’ rundt i landet.

The city hall in Rollag is a relatively modest house compared to other municipal ‘palaces’ around the country.

Picture 485Et bibliotek har man jo kostet på seg . . .
An there is a library here . . .

Picture 484Og selvfølgelig er det en dagligvarehandel, men ellers er Rollag mest en skog- og fjellkommune.

And, of course, there is a local grocery store, but otherwise Rollag is more a ‘forest and mountain’ kind of community.

Picture 493Well, – det finnes en pittoresk liten campingplass nede ved elven dersom stedet skulle friste til et besøk?  Men altså et godt utgangspunkt for turer, fiske og/eller jakt i det omkringliggende terrenget.

Well, there is a picturesque small camping site down by the river if this place should invite you for a visit? But mainly a good place to start if you want to go tracking, camping, fishing or hunting in the surrounding area?

    The church is picture perfect – a picture one would find on a Christmas card. I can imagine how beautiful the church looks when it is in a snowy setting.

    That wooden bank is wonderful!
    I love when big business gets rural 😛

  3. I spent a delightful night in a stabbur at Rollag in the Numendal Valley last year. It is a memory I will treasure. I had dinner and breakfast at the old and former railway station, cooked by a Swedish chef

      How delightful! So you’ve really been there?! It’ll give me an urge to go out finding you more things to look at. And yes, there are a lot of Sweedes finding work in Norway due to the similarities of the languages, allthough in some cases it may prove to be a barrier depending ‘where’ you live in the respective countries.
