Sandeid church

Sandeid church 
The first church was built about 1100 (at the old  place of sacrifice by the churchyard from the Middle Ages- near by the existing  chapel). This was a  stave church  beeing enlarged in 1625, but falling to pieces in the 17.-century . In 1814 the
stave church was tear down and replaced by a small church  without  steeple. This church was in use until 1904, when the existing church was build.

Old peathut at Fjellstøl


From old times the farms down in the valley had a right to cut peat from the bogs at the mountain dairy farm. The peat was cut in the early summer placed for drying. Dry peat was placed in the huts. In  winter the peat was transported on sledge to the farms down in the walley. At this time the woodland  were small and the peat was used in sted of fire wood on the farms.

Brick walls and  parts from 25 peathuts in the area. Some of the huts was used until 1950. No one knows for shure when the huts was build, but we guess it happened at the time the woodland were reduced all over the country at the end of the 1700. In one of the bogs there is found clothes, human hair and  pearls. The peathuts are in private, but Sandeid bondelag has on voluntary communal work restored 3 huts.

View from the montain Hovda (591 moh)  facing south . Far on the horizon and behind the haze we find Stavanger. On the left is Sandeid. The highest top in the picture is Lysenuten (812 moh), but the top in the middle of the picture, Grytenuten, is a few metre taller then Lysenuten. The expressboat is comming from Vikedal. Far away, beyond  Sandeidfjorden, Vindafjorden, Krossfjorden, Ringafjorden og Nedstrandsfjorden you'll find Ombo.
