    Stedum


    In these off the beaten path tips, I want to show you a little bit of the surrounding villages.

    This first picture is of a little village called Stedum. Originally the tower stood free from the church, the connecting part between them dates from the 19th century. Stedum is about 3 kilometres from Loppersum and by far the most beautiful part of this village is the church.

    The church of Stedum is a big church in Romano-Gothic style, built in the 13th century. The big, massive looking tower is as wide as the single-aisled nave. On top is a saddle-roof, as is common younger than the church and must have been built ca. 1300.

    If you want to know more about this church you can have a look at this website:

    Cole-seed fields


    This is a picture that brings out the best memories that I have of the Province of Groningen. Standing in this field of cole-seed, with its beautiful yellow flowers and it's scented flowers brings me back to my childhood.....

    There used to be so many of these cole-sead fields in Groningen, but unfortunately they start to disappear. Other crops seem to be more profitable these days. But I did find this field, and it made me think back to the past.

    I've always loved these fields, the vibrant colour, the smell, it's gorgeous! Close to my friends house there was a field of cole-seed and when it was in bloom, you could find me there. Hahaha, it's a great spot to play hide and seek in, because the plants are so high..... but don't tell the farmer that I did that, hahaha, he probably won't like it ;-)

    This part of the province of Groningen is quite the same as it was some 60 years ago. Roads are still marked by trees, sometimes the roads are quite windy, a surprise around almost any corner.

    Pastures and cows at Loppersum


    Loppersum is located in a very rural area. It don't think it can get much more 'rural' than this actually. The village is surrounded by farmland. Lots of it is pastures with grazing cows.
