The Henjasand cluster of houses

This sea-crofter’s place was located by the fjord at Hermansverk in Leikanger as one of several smallholdings under the farm Henjum. The siblings Kari and Anders Henjesand were the last occupants of the cottage until 1974 and 1980 respectively.

The people at Henjasanden were crofters and farmers. In addition to farming, Anders worked as a cooper, and Kari worked at the local juice and berry factory.
