Geography[eedit | eedit soorce]

The aurie is a traditional Swadish woodland. Hintle o its industries haes therefore a connection tae the forest industry.

Key Featurs[eedit | eedit soorce]

Apairt frae Partille Manor, the main key featur o Partille is the shoppin maw Allum. In 1999 Partille municipality initiatit a cooperation wi the construction company Sten & Ström Sverige. The aim o this co-operation wis tae unify the twa pairts o the municipality, each on the north/sooth o the heich-gate E20.[4] The biggin o Allum begun the 3rd o Februar 2004 an wis completit in the 9t o Aprile 2006. The name "Allum" comes frae the auld Swadish wird for "alla" (iveryane), the name thus mean "åt alla" (for iveryane) or "till alla" (tae iveryane). The mall haes creatit roughly 650 new jobs an includes aroond 100 stores.[5]

History[eedit | eedit soorce]

The aurie haes been inhabitit for mair than a thoosan years. Fifteen auncient monuments frae that time remain.

Partille is locatit in a valley, atween some muntains in a rocky terrain. Its name is believit tae be derivit frae something similar tae "Part haella" meanin "split rock". Anither possible meanin coud be "Port haella", the door in the muntain. The sma river Säveån flows through the valley an intersects Partille. The name Säveån stems frae the wirds säve, as in sävligt (leisurely, slow) an ån (the stream/creek), as it is a vera slowly flowin little river. The river haes been o great importance for Partille throughoot its history. The fertile soil aroond it wis uised for agricultur an durin the medieval ages a lot o ferms wur locatit there.[6]

The auldest existin biggin in Partille is Partille Kyrka (Partille Kirk) which wis built in the 13t century. The kirk, being placit in the current centre o Partille, indicates that the present centre haes been the natural rendezvous an centre o the municipality iver syne it wis built. Being a Swadish, vera auld-fashioned, Partille Kyrka haes nae bell touer, as a compliment a separate belfry was built in 1652.[7]

It is an aw an excellent place for fishin. Records frae the 16t century show that govrenment offeecials fished here at the time. As is still the case the day, the maist popular fish wur salmon an trout.[8]

Apairt frae agricultur an forestry transportations haes been a vera important field o business. The manger o the East India Company, David af Sanderberg, built Partille Herrgård (manor) atween 1770 an 1780, the day this manor serves a landmark for iveryane who passes through the municipality. Later, durin the 19t century, Swaden's first industrial society developit in Jonsered. The Scotsmen William Gibson an Alexander Keiller opened a factory for production o sail- an tent cloth. Swaden's first terrace-hooses in classical Inglis style wis an aw built there. Nouadays Jonsered is still classifeed as a naitional interest due tae its well preservit cultural environment.[9]
