Silent Sunday….Off to the Kirke


Saint Mary’s Church, Bergen, Norway

Many of the streets in Bergen are narrow, so when you turn a corner, the scale and bold frontage of Saint Mary’s Church does rather take you by surprise.  Origins are 12 century.  The architectural style is a mix of Gothic but mainly Romanesque, its bold white twin towers contrast well with the heavy stone.

A very different bold statement to that of Wells Cathedral featured in last Sundays post, but a similar generation and equally as dramatic and imposing .

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
