dated 1630.
This stone probably lay in the first church that stood here. It was a Roman (?) building with a separate tower facing East.
At a certain time the congregation got enough money to build a new church and so the old one was torn down.
Too bad the 'new' church now shows severe construction errors and the towers is leaning forward a bit.
When I was a kid the bell sounded at each hour but since long this is no more. I do miss the sound of that bell!
