Sauðaneskirkja

THE ABANDONED CHURCH IN ICELAND

This is the ‘Sauðaneskirkja’ in Langanesvegur, in a small village in the East of Iceland. It was built by local architect Vigfús.

One of the most remote churches in Iceland is this farm church in Langanes, named Sauðaneskirkja. Sauðanes is the name of the farm, it lies on Langanes peninsula in north-east Iceland.

The old church was built in 1889 and is now a protected building. The church was built in wood. Later, the roof and the truss were covered with corrugated iron.

The old vicarage built in 1879 next door the church has been deposited with the National Museum in 1989. These photos of ‘Sauðaneskirkja Langanesvegur’ were taken in 2013 during my Iceland roadtrip.
