Knegsel (NB): H.H. Monulphus en Gondulphus (H.W. Valk, 1926)


Although at the time of construction of this church architect H.W. Valk was still working in an Expressionistic style, there's not a trace of any influence from the Amsterdam School visible here. This church is strangely traditional, almost neo-Gothic, albeit a very moderate neo-Gothicism, almost completely devoid of ornaments and other decorations. Valk built several churches in a similar style in the late 1920's.
It's a pseudo-basilican cruciform church with a narrow transept, a polygonal choir and a short, massive looking tower. The church replaced a predecessor from 1857 at the same location, which itself replaced a medieval church outside the current village.
