Photographer's Note

This typical Danish village church was built around 1200 (800 years old). In the first centuries it was also a shelter for the citizens in bad times, when enemies ravaged the country.
In the Tower is the Bell that formerly was used to gather people, and still is used to mark a service.

The Black metal T's, which can be seen on the Tower, are "Wall ties". Two T's on opposite walls are connected with an iron bar, in order to prevent the walls from falling apart. Every generation during the centuries has put great efforts to preserve their inheritance and I would guess the Roof has been renewed several times, as with the Interior. The Walls are over 1 meter tick and consist mostly of stones found in the fields (note the rough surfaces) and those walls have stood since it was built.
