St Bartholomew, Cadeleigh, Devon on Flickr.
This is a view of the curiously designed Borgund Stave Church in Norway built sometime between 1180 and 1250 AD. Learn more about the puzzling and mysterious Northern Christian art.
Situated a little away from the city centre by the river and King John’s Castle. It is an ancient but badly treated building down the centuries, and the church was very dark inside despite the continuously burning lights. 3 euros admission charge. I tried to like it but I didn’t much. It is better outside, with a large Norman west doorway and a medley of gables and windows. It was begun in 1186. There is a set of medieval misericords, now in the north aisle, a large but rather dull monument floor to ceiling in the north side of the sanctuary, and some reasonable stained glass. The main east-west views are just about satisfactory but the rest is a series of odd independent spaces which do not create a satisfying impression, especially given that some of them are not used for anything much than storage or exhibition boards.

A little over the top perhaps?
