This church has a long and interesting history, and was important to both Asta and Frederik’s families. All of their parents were buried here. If you would like to take a closer look at the first picture of Thorning Church and Schools, including all of the pastors and teachers, please click here.


Thorning Old School (Kirkely), where NP Nielsen taught and in which Frederik Bertelsen lived in retirement, is shown in the last six pictures. It has now become a hostel* - see the video here. (Danish narration only) The new Thorning School, where Asta grew up, is in the fifth-from-last picture.


*Update 2018: The original building has been torn down and a new parish house and hostel will be built in its place.
