Sint-Margaretakerk (in Norg)

Visited: July 11, 2014

Though often referred to as 'Norg Kerk', the name of this 13th century Romanesque church is the Sint-Margaretakerk. It is located on Brink, about 200 metres from Norg town-centre bus halt at Westeind.

The church is notable for the grouping of stones in front of it: a number of deeply buried supporting stones with only their tops showing are surmounted by two capstones that would do justice to many a hunebed.

This monument is not, however, credited as being a hunebed, but it seems highly likely that it is an ancient grave of some description.

On the way up to see D1 at Steenbergen and D2 at Westervelde (which we had to give up on) we passed through the village of Norg. The church, which is on the main drag next to the village centre car park has the remnants of a monument just outside the front door, sandwiched between it and the main road. These small stones don't have an official D number, but they were clearly part of something. We spotted some other suspicious-looking stones in the car park which had been carefully tarmac'd around rather than moved or carted off, which we felt was quite significant. Jane Posted by Jane
