Beek (G): St. Bartholomeus

 

After the catholics of Beek had given up on their attempts at restitution of the old church, and their number had grown too tall for it anyway, they built themselves a new church instead. In 1825-1826 a three-aisled church in neo-Classical style was built by an unknow architect. In 1891-1892 this church was enlarged by J. Kayser, who transformed the church into a four-aisled one and added a pseudo-transept and a tower, all in neo-Renaissance style. After the church had been badly damaged in 1944 it was repaired by architect B.W.A. Goddijn, who joined the two main aisles by removing the central line of pillars and replacing the ceiling. The old facade, which had two big windows, was replaced by a mostly closed new front with a portal.
