Brinkdorp Norg (village green)
The lovely village of Norg with its cosy village green is popular among recreationists and tourists. The forests of the Norgerholt are within a stone's throw of the village and are an invitation to take a stroll or a bike ride.
Norg has a number of special sights, such as the church and the war memorial, as well as the corn mills and the magnificent artworks. Additionally, Norg has a wide range of shops, and it may have an even wider range of hospitality facilities and overnight accommodations.
The old village centre has as many as five village greens, which are surrounded by characteristic Saxon farms. Originally, the village greens were on the outskirts of the village. They were intended for gathering the cattle. The landscape of ‘esdorpen' (village greens) around Norg still bears a close resemblance to the original. Here, you will find old cultivated fields, small heathlands, and meadows with wooden fences.
Taking a stroll through and around Norg is well worth it. On our route page, you can find a nice walking route that will take you along the most beautiful places.
St. Margaretha Church
The magnificent church, which is definitely worth seeing, is immediately noticeable in the village centre. The Saint Margaretha Church was built in the mid-13th century and has a holy water font that is older than the church itself. Moreover, there are some unique 17th-century elements to the church.
The church is named after Saint Margaretha, the patroness of agriculture. The church was given three entrance doors: a northern door for women, a southern door for men, and an entrance for the priest on the southern side of the choir. The churchgoers came from far and wide. In some cases, distances of 15 kilometres were very common. Consequently, they chose the shortest route: right through the meadows and straight towards the church tower. This is how the ‘church paths' arose.
Near the church is an erratic block. This is one of the war memorials. It is there in commemoration of the fallen citizens.
