We have a strange summer, from one moment to another it suddenly starts to rain heavenly. here in Hilversum. Everybody flights in a store or in a porch. Just a few minutes later the sun comes back as if nothing has happened.
Even the streets are dry again in a few minutes.
This "Big Church" for Protestants has a history of fires. The first church on this place was destroyed by fires in 1629, In 1766 the church and tower were destroyed again by fires. The current building dates from 1768 and was extended in 1890. In 1971 work was carried out to the roof to fix leaks. On December 3, the tower caught fire with the spire including the two clocks were completey destroyed. The roof of the church collapsed but remained in the walls. In 1974 the restoration followed.
