A connected lake system with shorter canal sections was built to facilitate the iron transports from Bergslagen to Kristinehamn. In the Karlskoga mining district, Knappfors lock was built 1850-1852. When Bjurbäcken’s and Asphyttan’s locks in the Filipstad mining district were completed in 1857, a navigable waterway was founded all the way from Karlskoga to Filipstad, which we now call the Bergslags Canal. To reach the Bergslags Canal, located northeast of Lake Vänern, land transport is required.
