+ Buderup church / Buderup kirke, (ødekirke) Hornum herred, Aalborg amt.

Buderup Church, ab. 15 km south of AalborgBuderup Sogn, Hornum herred, Aalborg amt.

The old Buderup Church, Buderup Ødekirke ,was in 1907 together with the inauguration of the new church in Støvring abandoned as a parish church and listed under the National Museum as its property. It consists of nave and choir, western tower and porch to the south and a chapel to the north. The nave and choir are Romanesque in granite ashlars. From one Romanesque window is only left a cover stone in the porch. The north door disappeared when the chapel was added.

The Romanesque choir arch is preserved with ornamental kragsten (obliong relief stones). The vaulted tower room is open to the nave with a pointed arch in the width of the room. The north chapel is Renaissance with flat ceiling, under the floor is a burial vault. The porch is mostly in small yellow bricks, the gable is newer and rebuilt. In the church were found rests of frescoes from the Renaissance period. The Communion table is walled and white-washed with a barrelvaulted niche in the south side. From the inventory is preserved only the Romanesque granite font (only the basin ) plus a new series pastorum.

From the other inventory are altarpiece, panel and pulpit in 1944 moved to Suldrup Church - an altarpiece from 1901, chalice, candelabres, baptismal bowl, chandelier and church bell moved to the church in Støvring (Aalborg) and in Aalborg Historiske Museum is a painting from 1787, probably an altarpiece - and also to the museum a priest- and bishop's table from about the same time and a painted table according to which the inventory in 1708 were restored, paid by Mikkel Suhr of Buderupholm and his wife Barbara Risler plus a small Rococo corner cabinet. Another table where a restoration in 1763 was paid by kancelliråd Bjørn is kept at Buderupholm. In the choir are a gravestone and a memory table. Upon the old church yard are gravestones from the 1700s and 1800s. The old church yard by Buderup Church is kept in repair by the parish.
