Fantoft Stave ChurchEdit This
This could be called a 'new' old church as the original was burnt down in 1992. The replacement was constructed to the original pattern and completed in 1997. In 1998 the fresh wood smell conflicted hugely with the architectural design! The original was actually brought here from a site in the Sogn area in the second part of the 19th century, having been first built in the 12th century.
