At this web page I would like to give some information about my home
village Vejbystrand. I will also show pictures. All of the photographies
are taken by me during the years 2005 and 2006. I've totally written
24 web pages about Vejbystrand.

Vejbystrand is in the northwestern Scania, which is the most southern part of Sweden.

Vejbystrand name was first mentioned on a map from 1865. An older name is Vejbysjö.
Both names are from a close-located small village called Vejby that is documented in
writing from the year 1390.

In 1885 the railway came to the peninsula Bjärehalvön. Engelholm - Helsingborg was
opened for public traffic. The same year Engelholm - Engelholms port and last but not
least Engelholms port - Halmstad.
That was the radical and the nearest railway station for Vejbystrand became Barkåkra
station. Before the railroad came, it was the usual country to get around by horse and
wagon. By train it became easier to travel and it went faster. It went as to Engelholms
port and sea with the beach.
In 1922 they changed the station name Barkåkra to Vejbyslätt and simultaneously was
also Engelholms port to Skälderviken.

In Vejbystrand has mostly fed on fishing, agriculture and handicrafts.
