Five years ago I shared a vintage postcard of an old tower in the village Oud-Leusden (see below). Last week I was hiking in the area and decided to have a look.
The 13th century tower, once part of a church that was demolished in 1827, is still there. It is obviously renovated since the photo on the postcard was taken. The door is now walled up, the ivy is gone. There are also some changes in the graveyard – a few new graves, a few stones are gone. The graveyard is actually bigger than it seems on the photo, the main part is behind the tower, it is still in use today.
I will share a few photos of the graveyard soon, in my Tombstone Tuesday series.
