The old church of Saint-Étienne-au-Mont de Statte

The old church of Saint-Étienne-au-Mont de Statte

The origins of the church are lost in the mists of time. The current building is the result of the partial demolition in 1899 to convert it into a dwelling from a sanctuary built from limestone rubble in 1618 and restored in 1735, according to an inscription. Only one bay remains of the four-bay nave with rounded chancel and a robust quadrangular tower with octagonal spire to the front. The entrance was through an arched doorway with a window of the same type above. Some of the openings in the church are as late as the 20th century.

A cemetery surrounds the building, which features several 17th century gravestones by the tower. Standing out among the graves is a stone for the Corphalie mining concession.

Building (church and walls along the Chemin-de-Messe) and site (former roadside cross of Statte, former cemetery, church and Chemin-de-Messe) listed on 5th September 1978
