Bedsted Church

Village church in Bedsted.

Bedsted village church is perched high on a hill with a fairly steep drop to the east. Apse (recovered), chancel and nave is Romanesque, the tower is from the late Gothic times, and there's a younger porch. The interior is characterized by the chancel arch, from around 1500, which was extended to almost the same range as the chorus, which gives the church a very open space. It also makes the great altar piece "step forward". It was donated by the manor Tandrup, like the rest of the church's rich furniture. One of Tandrups owners, Paul Klingenberg, died in 1771, may be seen and heard" in the tower room - in his coffin!
