Now known as the hometown of the national female footballer, Melissa Wiik, the village of Slemmestad in Oslo, Norway, was once nothing more than a cement factory. Located at the border of Asker at the Oslo fjord, the Aktieselskabet Christiania Portland cement plant was the only cement factory in the country for many years, once employing almost 500 people and producing more than a million tonnes of cement each year
With no infrastructure to support it, many workers travelled for miles to complete their 12-hour shifts at the factory. Torn down in 1989 to make way for the residential area of Headland and other industry buildings, the factory's archives were transferred to the Cement Museum, which is best located by car hire in Slemmestad.
The village of Slemmestad is also home to the biggest Hindu temple in the country. Built in 2005, it was originally a 'people's house' for the village's first Labour Association and can be reached by cheap car hire in Slemmestad. Other than that and the small-scale industry that remains here, Slemmestad is mainly characterised by those who commute to Drammen and Oslo, and has little else to offer visitors other than a sports grounds and an outdoor swimming pool.
