De Groate Kerk

St. Jacobiparochie, NL

The Groate Church, built in 1844, replaced a brick church that was originally built around 1530. Only the church tower from 1669 was maintained. In 1979 the Alde Fryske Tsjerken Foundation took over the church. The building has undergone radical restoration and has been in use since 1980 as a cultural center. A pilgrim information center has been established in the porch since 2011.

The tomb of the young philosopher David van Goorle (1591-1612) is found in the aisle.

Plaxtol, GB

Old Soar Manor is situated in a remote position in the Kent countryside near Ightham, on the edge of the North Downs.
