Wommels (Fr): reformed church

The church of Wommels, then still known by its catholic name St. Jacobus, was destroyed by fire in the late-15th century. Of the 13th-century church nothing remains. A new late-Gothic church was built in ca. 1508. As common for this part of the country, it has a one-aisled nave.
The tower from this period has not survived; only parts of its lower segment remain in the current brick tower, which was built in 1862 and is in some unspecified neo-style.
The choir has a niche with an ogee arch at the top, a shape rarely used in Gothic architecture in The Netherlands.
