Hergot Chapel (Norwegian: Hergot kapell) is a chapel in the municipality of Narvik in Nordland county, Norway. It is located in the village of Hergot. The chapel is part of the Narvik parish in the Ofoten deanery in the Diocese of Sør-Hålogaland. The white chapel was built in 2005 to replace the old Straumsnes Chapel in nearby Straumsnes.[1]

History[edit]

A chapel was built in Straumsnes in 1927 to serve the people living around the Rombaken fjord. In 2005, a new chapel was built in Hergot, about 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) to the northeast, to replace the old chapel in Straumsnes. The new chapel is located at the site of the local cemetery.
