Older than it looks

Egentlig er den gamle Hof kirke betydelig eldre enn det kan se ut som. Det skyldes at den over tid er påbygget med et spir i 1662 og et våpenhus så sent som i 1958, men opprinnelig ble kirken bygget som en langkirke så tidlig som i 1150! Kirken har faktisk plass for inntil 600 mennesker!
Actually, the old Hof church is considerably older than it looks. Over timethe tower with spire was built in 1652,  and an armory  was  later built i 1958, but was originally the church built as a longchurch as early as 1150! The church may seat up to 600 people!
