Impressive building from the outside. Unfortunately not accessible inside. Neat cemetery is open.

Hejls Cemetery is always a pleasure to come by, as Tom is digging the cemetery so well. Tom is welcoming and a great help when we come up with headstones to be set up Greet your skilled stone carver Kolding Stoneware

My hometown church, where I am both baptized and confirmed. My parents and a large part of the family are buried there, as well as many others from my hometown. I really like that place.

La Hougue Bie

La Hougue Bie is a Neolithic ritual site which was in use around 3500 BC. Hougue is a Jèrriais/Norman language word meaning a \'mound\' and comes from the Old Norse word haugr. The site consists of 18.6m long passage chamber covered by a 12.2m high mound. The site was first excavated in 1925 by the Société Jersiaise. Fragments of twenty vase supports were found along with the scattered remains of at least eight individuals. Gravegoods, mostly pottery, were also present. At some time in the past, the site had evidently been entered and ransacked.

In Western Europe, it is one of the largest and best preserved passage graves and the most impressive and best preserved monument of Armorican Passage Grave group. Although they are termed \'passage graves\', they were ceremonial sites, whose function was more similar to churches or cathedrals, where burials were incidental.
