The church was founded ca. 1050 and was completed in the 12th century. Of this romanesque church only the tower remains.
The 36-metre tower has been calculated as now leaning at a greater angle than the leaning tower of Pisa. If both towers were the same height, Bedum's would have a greater displacement by 6 cm.
