Photographer's Note

This little wooden church is serving a parish of less than 600 souls, living in a mountain area in Central Norway. The architecture is special since the layout is a Y-form, which is used in only four other churches in the country.

The building of the church was finished in 1754, it was done by the parish and without any public support financially or otherwise. Later it was a major restoration in 1906, and today the church seats 200 persons.

The church is surrounded by farmland, mainly sheep and goat farmers.

Red like here is another colour for churches but not very common, and it is mostly used for smaller structures like this one.

The workshop image shows details from the surrounding cemetery.

Name in Norwegian: Budal kirke.
