Description
The original church in Anderslöv was constructed at end of the 12th century as a Romanesque church with apses, choir and nave. The choir and nave were vaulted during the first half of the 14th century. The vaults were painted by the Snårestad’s workshop at end of the first half of the 14th century. In year 1767 was the north transept constructed and in 1841 the south transept was built as the church needed more seats. The west vault and some of the severies in the first vault of nave were damaged when a fire destroyed the tower in 1869. During the 18th century the paintings was hidden behind whitewash. They were uncovered and restored in 1930.
