    I have been inside this church. It is fantastic. Did you go inside?

      Unfortunately ‘no’!
      This church is located a couple of miles outside of Oppdal and when nothing happens the doors are locked to prevent theft and such . . .

        Ah. I see. I was lucky enough to be on a tour and be shown the wonderful wood carving by one of the Brothers who have the carving business. Their family carved inside the church. I will post some pics one day soon, and add a link back so you can see it.

  2. It’s a simple yet very beautiful church, I think very typical of its time. 🙂

      Yes, you’re probably right? The changes to a more modern form of churches started around 1970 here in Norway.
      Before then, it was 50/50 with ‘cross churches’ versus ‘long churches’, but building materials have varied over a considerable longer period.
