Last week I blogged about the church at Norra Fågelås. A bit further south from there – with a bit of luck, and/or a good map or GPS – you’ll also find Södra Fågelås, at the end of a narrow countryside road. (The sign says “The public road ends here.”)
This church was built in the 1600, and unlike the one in N Fågelås, this one is all wood.
The bell tower is from the late 1800s and was built to replace an older one which was destroyed in a fire.
From various pieces of information found on different websites, I gather that the church has not always been red; but has been at least since 1942.
Much of the interior of the original church was also destroyed by a fire in the past (I presume the same one as the old bell tower). The church was not open when we were there, so we could not go inside. But if you click here, the link will take you to a website which shows the interior. (When on the page, if you click and move your cursor, you’ll be able to see it from all angles. You can also zoom in on details by scrolling.)
And if that link doesn’t work when you try it, here’s a postcard I bought (found in another church in the area).
