Västra Götalands län Sweden
|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
A small cemetery on a hillside with a red wooden clocktower to the left/south of the white church. The church was probably built in the second half of the 1100's and was rebuilt (added to) in the 1700's.
The cemetery is split into six parts (A-F) and surrounded by a low stone wall, the outside of the wall is higher than the inside. The main gate is to the east with stairs up to the cemetery road leading to the west gate on the other side. There's also small stairs added as a part of the north wall, near the sacristy, leading down to a private road and a farm near the river. There are an elementary school and a few houses next to the south wall.
Next to the east gate is the parking lot and to the right of it is the local folk museum. The old building is used for church functions.
