Løten church with chapel


Løten church is a medieval church from around the year 1200. It was built as a little stone church close to the pre-Christian cult site of Njardarhov; today's Norderhaug. The church was extended and re-built, primarily in the 19th century, and now stands as a longitudinal church with chancel and entrance area in mixed styles. The Løten local-authority area is all one ecclesiastical parish. A culture trail has been set up in the village with 1 information boards about cultural heritage sites and historical places in the area, including the rectory, burial sites, the hill fort, the church site as a centre of culture and iron-age graves. The culture trail is 2 ½ miles long.
