Gundslev Church

Nørre Alslev, Denmark

Gundslev Church situated 1 km from the town Gundslev, because the village was moved in the 14th century. The church was founded pribably in the 12th century. It has a neat and harmonious appearance, and is constructed of red brick. The interior contains some early frecoes, dating probably from around 1300. They include depictions of the twelve apostles, in good condition, perhaps because they are likely to have offended Protestant sensibilities, and some less well preserved images of the Devil roaming around on earth.

Nørre Alslev church is a parish church for Nørre Alslev parish with approx. 2,600 inhabitants. Nørre Alslev medieval church has a youth chorus and ship. Younger, Gothic tower and porch with cam-roofed gables. Everything in the monk and red limed. In the interior of the church, in the vestibule, one of the rare representations of the dance of death is performed by the Elmelunde workshop. In the church's apse is a lime-painted inscription with the year 1208, which probably dates the church's oldest parts.

Broch of Gurness

The Broch of Gurness is an Iron Age broch village. Settlement here began sometime between 500 and 200 BC. At the centre of the settlement is a stone tower or broch, which once probably reached a height of around 10 metres. Its interior is divided into sections by upright slabs. The tower features two skins of drystone walls, with stone-floored galleries in between. These are accessed by steps. Stone ledges suggest that there was once an upper storey with a timber floor. The roof would have been thatched, surrounded by a wall walk linked by stairs to the ground floor. The broch features two hearths and a subterranean stone cistern with steps leading down into it. It is thought to have some religious significance, relating to an Iron Age cult of the underground.

The remains of the central tower are up to 3.6 metres high, and the stone walls are up to 4.1 metres thick.
