Photographer's Note

The Grand or Our Lady Church in Tholen.

Nothing is known about the origin of the Grand Church.
It is certain that there has been a church in the 13th or 14th century, it was situated
on the same place as the aisle in the present day church.
This first church was demolished in about 1360.
In about 1404, they probably started to build the present day church. It is possible
that the architectural design of the church was from the well known architect Evert
Spoorwater from Brussels. This architect was involved in the building of nearly all
the churches in the Brabant Gothic style.
Some dimensions.
Height of the tower 49 metres. True square of 8.50 meters.
Cross- basilica 67 metres long. Width of aisle 18 metres, height 24 metres.
In the tower there are three bells of which the biggest weighs 959 kilos.
