  The tower of the Reformed Church in the sky
by Pavlik_NL

The old Dutch Reformed church has a tower that is exactly like the belltowers in Ballum and Nes. The church was built in 1678, before the tower in Ballum, but after the one in Nes. It's tower however is from about the same time as the one in Nes. The towers have a so called "saddle" roof and are therefor easy to be recognised from sea. In the cemetry surrounding the church are many intresting gravestones from whaling caommandeurs. Among them the famous Hidde Kat with a very simple last resting place.
