The village of Eidfjord in Norway stands at the top of the fjord of the same name on sandy ground at the mouth of the Eio River. Behind the village are strange gravel and sand terraces, left some 9,000 years ago when the inland ice melted and flowed away. The charming church bears the inscription ‘Ragna Asulfsdatter built this church – she died on Christmas Eve’. Folklore has it that the lady built the church in the 12th century as an atonement for killing her husband!
