Church in village on a wierd
Sep 2020
The Protestant church of Eenrum is very much dominated by the 50m high tower completed in 1652. You can see it from far away, also because the village is located on a 'wierd', a man made elevation that served as a place to keep dry feet (and cattle) in case of high waters. The wierd lost its purpose in the early 1200s when people had learned how to make dykes to keep the water out. During the same period the first stone buildings started to emerge. The oldest part of the Eenrum church dates from 13th century and initially had a free standing tower. If you want to get a clearer idea of how the original structure looked like, go to nearby Ezinge.

The Late Romanesque Church From the 13th Century
Sep 2020
The church which inner walls were bricked up with tuff stones from the previous church building looks a bit sobre with the white colour. At the left corner by the choir there is a small piece of the 13th century wall decoration. The tower has an octagonal structure with a dome, all resting on a square base. The structure is crowned by an open "onion-shaped" spire. It is not a beautiful church but it has a very special thing : a lavastone baptistry from the 11 th century.
