The Society for the Protection of Norwegian Ancient Monuments in Inderøy are, amongst others, tasked with the care of the 2 medieval churches Sakshaug old church and Hustad Church.
SAKSHAUG OLD CHURCH
From Sakshaug Old Church you have a beautiful view over Inderøy. The church was consecrated in 1184, and mason marks show great similarities with Norway’s national shrine, Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim. The church contains a number of interesting artistic and architectural historical details. Widely used for weddings and festival concerts in the summer.
Hustad church, constructed in the 1100s, can be found sheltered behind majestic trees in Sandvollan. The church has been virtually unchanged since 1884. When visiting, you must also make sure to observe the distinctive fence “kirkeplanken” (the church plank)”, surrounding the cemetery.
Both churches are owned by Fortidsminneforeningen (The Society for the Protection of Norwegian Ancient Monuments). During the summer season, both churches are open for visitors on Sundays. Guided tours can be booked and arranged all year.
Inderøy Fortidsminneforening is certified as InderøyVert, which means that employees are trained in hosting, local history and the tourism offers in Inderøy generally.
Up to date opening hours for for Sakshaug old church and Hustad church is available on the page “opening hours for experiences along the Golden Road”.
