I met a lovely lady this morning who told me a lot about the history of the church that stands in the middle of our village.
The part shown here is “The Old part” and it was built between 1120-1140 by a man who also participated in the construction of The Cathedral of Lund. His name Carl Stonemaster (in Swedish: Stenmästare) says a lot about him.
“The New part” came 1895-1896 because they needed more room. But the economy was poor so they kept the old part, luckily for us. It gives a certain solemnity to visit a place that old. They also raised the tower by twice the height.
Inside the altar is from 1632 and a real treasure. Remarkable renaissance sculpture from this part of the world. The pulpit and the font is from this time also.
It’s amazing what a morning walk may teach us.
