Hello, I have a question about a very small bunker locations near Kristiaansand - Hægland.

This summer we were on our way from Kristiaansand to Floro for a bunker trip. We stopped at a hytte in Haergrland and the next day we passed a bunker along the road. We found two building and some remain of probably a gun. I add some pictures to the message.
The GPS coordinates are N58 19.588 E7 52.961

Who can help us with this locations: the name and number, what the functions was and the type of buildings there where/are.

Thanks for any help, regards,

Raphael Smid

This area was designated as a Ausweichsstelle for divisional supply units around 1941 and later as a Gefechtsstand for 214. Inf-Div., and several small storage camps were placed here. Perhaps this ruin is a remain from one of those camps. Can't help you with the gun remains, sorry.

In my opinion, this seems like some remains of an old farming-equipment or similar. The complete text on the side would probably be a clue, but I can see "verk" as the last word and that could be some norwegian firm for iron-casting/ mechanical manufacture..?

EDIT: Having enlarged the picture, I'm pretty sure it says "Eidsfoss verk", an old iron-work:

Everybody thanks for there answers. In the meantime we have added the pictures to the website.
Next week I hope to add also a update about Floro.
After Floro we had to skipp our Norway trip because one of us was realy ill, we had to go home. Maybe next year we can make the hole trip.
