"Memory lane" Olterterp by nighthawk

Olterterp Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 4 photos

As children we often visited the province of Friesland with our parents. To be more specific we went to a little village called Olterterp. In this region also lies Beetsterzwaag, and there are some wonderful woods in between Olterterp and Beetsterzwaag.
First stop always is the little church of Olterterp.
This little gothic church lies alone on a little hill (terp). It was built in 1415 and in the 18th century a tower was added.

This is an old postcard I found on the net. (http://www2.pbf.nl/cgi-bin/gemeente.cgi?plaats=Olterterp).
Nowadays the scenery has changed for the farm has a new house and far more bushes stand in between the road and the church.

When you look closely, you can see the church tower through the trees. The road leads to the farm on the left.

I will add some more pictures in a travelogue.
