This visit during Covid-19 to Zomergem 18 km of Bruges, this is allowed in Belgium at the moment.

My bike ride went past Zomergem a village a rural area between Bruges and Ghent

"The church of Zomergem is a true work of art that like
one of the cleanest and most worth seeing of
the Meetjesland can be called and where
every summer lover can be proud of, as well as many passers-by there with inspecting interest
looking up to it. "This is what the council of aldermen of Zomergem wrote
after repairs in the year 1900. Around that time
the Church had already endured a turbulent history and its trials were not yet over.

The church council ordered the "pulpit" in 1868 from the Antwerp sculptor
P. J. De Cuyper for 10,000 francs. Several good ones are installed in the balustrade
deeds of St. Martin. Due to the explosion of the church in 1918
the pulpit was buried in rubble and almost completely destroyed.
The Blanchaert brothers from Ghent restored it initially lost
presumed furniture. With patience they put all the pieces together again
together so that the pulpit still has a place in the church. If you good
you can clearly see the cracks in the images.

I hope you like it
