Lomen Stave Church

This is the 10th stave church in our collection – the Lomen Stave Church. The old structure is located at the northern end of the Sildrefjord in Vestre Sildre Municipality.

It is believed that the church dates from the second half of the 11th century. It was first mentioned in writing in 1325, then under the name “Hvams Church”. In 1779 the house was enlarged. There was no longer enough space for the growing population. Four pillars inside the church are reminiscent of the original size of the old wooden structure.

Technically, this picture was not a big challenge. Light and weather conditions were almost perfect. The condition of the property on which the church stands and the church itself were in an almost unkempt condition. Perfect for a, I would like to say, romantic picture.
