Viðareiði, Viðoy

Viðareiði is the northernmost community on Viðoy. Here you really feel close to the Atlantic Ocean. The vicarage, Ónagerdi, is much older than the church.

The church silver is a gift from the British government to the Congreation of Viðareiði in acknowledgement of the charity and hospitality shown to the crew of the British bring “Marwood”, wrecked in the Faroe Islands, January 1847.
