The old stave church


This small and fair stave church is located close to West Telemark Museum, location Eidsborg.
The original building is from the period 1250-80 and expanded upon in the 1600 and 1800’s. The church was restored in 2005-2008 and is still in use. The stave church is of a kind that has the exterior covered entirely with chipping.


The church was dedicated to St.Nicolaus (locally called Nikuls), and a statue of this saint was very central in a local culture that remained well into the 1700s.
There are many interesting details to this church, such as runes, carvings, and interior décor from the 1600s and a bell tower from 1727.


From June until August there are regular tours of the church every day, or upon request. In the museum, you can purchase a book about the church.
