Her ser vi kirken fra nordvest med koret til venstre. Hele lengden er 32 m, tårnet med spir er 36 m høyt. Dette tårnet er fra 1787 og er bygget av kirkebyggeren Fredrik Bertelsen Ødegaard i Straumsnes. Initialene hans, F.S.B., står ennu i tårnfløyen. Tårnet er nå det fjerde i rekken av de en vet om. Kirken hadde spontak helt til 1708, senere teglstenstak og fra 1906 skiferstenstak. I tårnet henger tre klokker, den eldste ble omstøpt i 1705.


This is the church as viewed from northwest. On the left side of the picture, you will see the chancel. The entire length is 32 meters, the height of the steeple, with spire, is 36 meters. This steeple dates from 1787; it was the church builder Fredrik Bertelsen Oydegaard in Straumsnes who constructed it. In the steeple wing, we can still read his initials F.S.B. Of the known steeples, this was the fourth that was erected. Until 1708, the church was roofed in woodenshingles. This roof was replaced with a brick-roof. In 1906, a slated roof was installed and this roof remains until this day. Three bells hang in the steeple; the oldest one was recast in 1705.
