In the night of the 1st of May 1671 lightning struck the church tower and a fire started. The top of the tower and the western part of the church were completely destroyed. The tower was rebuilt, but so badly that it collapsed again in 1710. In 1718 they gave it another try and now with much better result. The top of the tower was designed by Allert Meijer. I just love this tower. The yellow-golden colours are so striking and always shine brightly on a sunny day. It's a cheerful sight that always brings a smile to my face.
