Back to Sweden


Ervalla parish dates back to the middle ages. The present (2012) church was completed in 1673. The building was renovated after a severe lightning strike in 1789. Other major work was done in 1900 and a few other times in the 1900s. A small village and a large manor house lie close to the church. 

Endowed with mostly level ground, agriculture has long driven the local economy including the manor, Ervalla. Tingstorp had an iron works in 1883. Two early railroad lines converged here as early as 1856 with Dylta station (later called Ervalla station) and Jerle station. The parish includes a small river and a lake, Väringen, and two school houses were build in the later 1800s.

Population in 1883 was 1748 and in 2005, only 179.  About 15 km north from Örebro city.
