Nässjö Old Church

Nässjö, Sweden

This church was built in 1791 in the neo-classical style typical of church architecture of the period. It replaced a medieval church that had long stood on the site, and contains some interesting inventory from the Middle Ages, inherited from the old building. The font is damaged, but is Romanesque and still worth seeing. There is a triptych from the13th century that was altered a couple of centuries later.

On the positive side, the church has a very nice premises and a very charming café. The church of the church from the outside, however, feels small on the outside. Very special architecture of the church. Bad with parking spaces, entrance is very secluded and pitiful. Feel that you have no good reason to visit the church, they are nothing special to see.

Aberlemno Sculptured Stones

The Aberlemno Sculptured Stones are a series of five Class I and II Early Medieval standing stones found in and around the village of Aberlemno. The stones with Pictish carvings variously date between about AD 500 and 800.

Aberlemno 1, 3 and 5 are located in recesses in the dry stone wall at the side of the road in Aberlemno. Aberlemno 2 is found in the Kirkyard, 300 yards south of the roadside stones. In recent years, bids have been made to move the stones to an indoor location to protect them from weathering, but this has met with local resistance and the stones are currently covered in the winter.

Aberlemno 4, the Flemington Farm Stone was found 30 yards from the church, and is now on display in the McManus Galleries, Dundee.
