Goudriaan (ZH): reformed church

The reformed church of Goudriaan is an aisleless building dating back to the 15th century. Its oldest part is the choir in late-Gothic style. The tower was built in the early 16th century and heightened in ca. 1550. Until a restoration in 1965-1968 the nave was covered with plaster. When this coat was removed it turned out that little that was really old was left. The originally cruciform church was drastically altered after it was damaged by a storm in 1747. When it was rebuilt in 1751, the transept-arms were demolished, except for a small part on either side, the choir was lowered and the nave was narrowed and closed with new sidewalls.
