Bedum - Netherlands

Officials from Bedum, a town in the northeastern Netherlands.

There are three churches on this card but I can only identify one, St Walfridus church, on the left side, famous for its leaning tower.

St Walfridus 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.
