Turns off from E4 at Eket. There is the sign "Rya Kyrkoruin".
Further onto a narrow dirt road. At the churchyard there is a large parking.
There are several cars there. Beautiful song flows out of the ruin.
It is practiced before a wedding.
Asking if it's OK to walk around and photograph.
Yes, please stay over the wedding as well.
The church was built around 1200, abandoned in 1875.
It is beautiful as a ruin. Meter thick walls of cobblestones.
Wall remnants, two to eight meters high.
In the choir there is a single altar with a cross.
Benches are installed in the longhouse.
In the porch is a basket of flowers to disperse the wedding couple with.
Modern bell tower of wood in the west.
A stone wall surrounds the cemetery.
Beyond it's a farm and a golf course.
In the cemetery there are some gravestones and cross in cast iron.
Fine-dressed wedding guests arrive.
Drive from there. Meet the priest on his way to the wedding.
Coffee and cake at Nya Conditoriet in Örkelljunga,
