Three of the churches we visited in Norway


After a fire in 1904, almost the whole town and the church were rebuilt in three years due to the prosperity of the salt cod trade.

The old church in Olden
was built in 1759 on the site of the old stave church.  It contains a Biblw which was published in 1550 by Christian III.

Hat stands in each pew came from the previous church.
