Borensberg Lock was the first to be built entirely under Swedish supervision. The old lockkeeper’s house dates from 1820. The Canal Company’s directives state that a cottage “of limestone with a tiled roof” was under construction at Husbyfjöl, which was the name of the village until the end of the 19th century. A new lockkeeper’s house was built in 1948.
