Winding gravel roads surrounded by hedgerows and lakes lead to Stensjö village. Unique to Stensjö village is the unaltered and preserved village environment. The village shows a clear example of what the late 19th century and early 20th century ideals looked like for a farm.
The owner of Stensjö village, the Vitterhetsakademin, ordered the work ahead of the application to make Stensjö village a cultural reserve. Cultural reserves are a form of protection to preserve valuable cultural landscapes. Compiled data for land use and natural values with building inventory and settlement analysis functioned as a knowledge base for the application to the county administrative board.
