  • When you stand in My Church, one can see for myself that you stand in one of the country's oldest churches (built 1125-1150). One can see the Church's development through the centuries, since at the last restoration (2000) chose to leave the walls stand exposed lots of the original building materials and with traces of changes and with remains of frescoes, which the Church looked in 1300, in 1600, in 1900, and as it looks today. The Church was built of travertine, which is formed where water over the millennia, dedicating lime around the pebbles, plant parts, etc. The tower was built at the same time as the Church, which at that time was unusual. A very narrow staircase inside the wall leads up in the Bell Tower. The tower was decorated a gallery or noble pulpitur, who was openly against the ship, and who gave Lord the man the chance, unseen by the Congregation to follow the church service. You may wonder what is the Lord of the Manor? For the gallery was deleted, since the Church's beamed ceiling in 1520 was replaced by the present brick vaulting. The Church belonged until the end of the 1600-century under the Crown/the Royal family and from 1687 to 1909, it was owned by Barrit forest. From 1909 surpassed it to freehold. In 1876 was a major restoration of the Church where the walls of the nave was elevated, while the current porch was built and the original entrance from the West – the tower – was walled. A few years after the tower was also elevated. In 1960 the church underwent a new restoration which, among other things. was inserted a new altar table and cross-udskiftedes with a more efficient stove and guy. The last restoration was done in 2000, where in cooperation with the National Museum removed the plaster layer from the walls. There appeared interesting murals and architectural historic features, as you chose to let be visible – as the church stands today. At the cemetery, there are several interesting grave memorials, and in the northwestern corner of the cemetery there is a small "institutional BARROW cemetery" with small tombs for residents on the now disused epilepsy Dr. Sell's Memorial nursing home – current. My After School. You can hear about the meaning and history of murals on a free app that can be downloaded to a smartphone: "Ear to the wall".
