The Medieval Church

The Medieval Church

The old church in Västerhaninge. It dates back 800 years. Lightning has struck the tower twice. The church was rebuilt after the latest fire back in 1831. Some reconstruction was made and the tower is now only thirty meters high compared with fifty five before the fire.

Detta är en av kyrkorna som jag missat fota i IR. Det måste jag nästan göra, kyrkor gör sig bra på det sättet :-)
