Overview
More
Hedrum church is a stone church dating from around the year 1100. The church can seat 260 people, and celebrated its first 950 years in 2010. The Roman-style stone church is mentioned in writing as early as the year 1080. It was recognized as one of six main churches in the ancient Viken county. Over the centuries the church has gone through some major changes, but the original nave with its characteristical crooked ground plan has primarily been kept as it was. A bell from the 1100s is today the oldest relic inside the church, while the impressive renaissance interior can be dated to the late 16th century. Also worth mentioning is the fact that there are several old gravestones masoned to the church floor here.
