This big boulder of Halkevadstenen
found in a little forest among other
memorial rocks. It was found in the
creek Lindeså, and might been part of an
ancient pavement of the crossing.
In 1881, the locals had collected DKK
1,000, and with the help of volunteers,
the stone was moved to its current
location and erected in memory of the
Constitution and its donor. It was
engraved: "Folkets lyst gav styrke
til min rejsning. Den 9. juni 1881"
- The desire of the people gave strength
to my erection. June 9, 1881.
Later, other rather dubious memorials
have been added on the boulder, and a
lion on the top.

when it smells of freshly baked bread.
