The Gmina of Kock
The gmina of Kock has a population of 7100 and covers an area of 100.5
sq.km. The southern border of the gmina is formed by the rivers Tysmienica
in the west and the Wieprz in the east. The Czarna is the other significant
river, and flows south through the gmina, with many large lakes near the
town of Kock. The south eastern corner is an area of wetlands, adjacent
to the Wieprz. With all this water, it should be of no surprise to discover
that fish farming is a speciality here. Most villages in the gmina are
formed partly, or completely of scattered farmsteads, each in their own
plot of land. Other villages, with some exceptions (like Zakalew) are formed
as a series of buildings either side of one road, and may be as long as
1km. Many farmstead villages are just a convenient name for farmsteads
scattered across the sides of a shallow valley.

A town that was the place where the last battle of the defensive war
of 1939 took place. There is a war cemetery here. There is a palace from
the 18th century, located in a landscaped park. The present church is in
the classical style and dates from 1782, but there has probably been a
church here since the 12th century. Kock received town rights in 1417 and
was later an important Calvinist centre. In 1750 the estate was bought
by Princess Anna Jabłonowska (Jablonowska), who remodelled it including
the buildings in the market square. There are many old houses in the town
dating from this period and later. 50% of the population were Jews and
it was a centre of the Chasidil movement.
The town sits on the east bank of the Czarna river, which forms a series
of large lakes at this point, on wetlands just to the north of the confluence
of the Czarna, Tysmienica and Wieprz rivers.
