divided in four segments and has a tall blind niche in each side of the
second, third and fourth segment. In the case of this tower the niche
on the western side of the second segment is directly connected to the
portal. The niches in the upper segment are
open with sound holes. On the north side the tower has a stairturret

other medieval churches in Drenthe.
