“Large church that sadly lost its interior beauty in WWI”

St. Nicholas' Church
Reviewed 18 March 2017

The church was completely destroyed in WWI and nearly completely in WWII. Although the church has been rebuild, as large a before, the interior is rather bare, and the once very beautiful rood/choir screen, is only represented by a few remaining pieces. There are some pictures detailing its original splendour. There is some art from just after the war, one based on a real occurrence during the war, when a German soldier gave a monstrans (religious object) to a Belgian soldier in one of the few instances when enemy soldiers fraternised.
