Lundby Church

The name of this church suggests it might be built on an old pagan sacrificial site.

The oldest parts of the walls originate from the 1100’s when a stone church of Romanesque style was erected. the lower part of the tower was added in the 1200’s after which a porch was built on the south side. Around the year 1400 the church was extended east while the ceiling was fitted with arches. On the north side came a sacristy and a saint chancel making the church ‘two ship’. In the 1630’s the vaults were white limed.

In 184§ the tower top was constructed and the tower’s ground floor raised. At the same time the southern porch with the main entrance was torn down. In 1890 the medieval vaults were updated into a simpler form.
