Leerbroek (ZH): reformed church


Very little information has been published about the church of Leerbroek. Its oldest part is the brick tower, built in Gothic style in ca. 1500. The late-Gothic nave is known to have been built in the first half of the 16th century. It's one aisle wide and was mostly built of brick as well, but with small parts of natural stone used in the buttresses and around the windows. The church became protestant during the Reformation and the choir was probably demolished in the18th century. 
After a fire destroyed the church in 1935, only the walls remained. In 1936 the church was restored by architect A. van Essen, who also designed the consistory added to the back of the church.
