The inside of the Stave Church Demanded our full attention and garnered our total respect.

The woodwork and fit was worthy of the finest cabinet makers in the land !

The tall ceiling and beams could absolutely capture one's focus until you would get a "crick" in your neck from looking up at such a angle.

This small door located behind the pulpit or speakers location, prompted several questions from the tour group. Some had thought that it might be a "confessional window".

However as it turns out it was so that the armed guards outside could hear the speaker also. Yep suspicions confirmed ! They were a warrior society. Arms were left outside and guarded by a armed lookout contingent.
