Nederland - Groet, Witte Kerkje

Nederland - Groet, Witte Kerkje
The single nave ‘Witte Kerkje’ (White Little Church) is dating back to the year of 1639. The tower is made of wood and has an octagonal spire. It is located on a so called ‘terp’, a man made elevation.

In 1825 the church was thoroughly restored. During World War II the building was used as a school. German soldiers have pulled the bell from the tower for use of the material in the war industry. A new bell was donated and replaced by the municipality of Schoorl in 1949.
Since 1972 the ‘Witte Kerkje’ has been recognized and protected as a Dutch national monument. Nowadays the church is still used for services.

During my visit the church was closed, so I couldn’t take an interior picture. If interested take a look at: www.goo.gl/aTcZC6
