Nes is a former municipality in the old Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway. The municipality existed from 1899 until its dissolution in 1964. The 60-square-kilometre (23 sq mi) municipality encompassed the coastal land north of the Bjugnfjorden as well as the Tarva islands in what is now the municipality of Bjugn in Trøndelag county. The administrative centre of Nes was the village of Nes where the Nes Church is located.[2]

History[edit]

The municipality of Nes was established on 1 January 1899 when the old municipality of Bjugn was split into three separate municipalities: Bjugn (population: 1,256), Skjørn (population: 2,166), and Nes (population: 1,285). During the 1960s, there were many municipal mergers across Norway due to the work of the Schei Committee. On 1 January 1964, the municipality of Nes (population: 1,107) was merged with the neighboring municipalities of Bjugn (population: 1,240), Jøssund (population: 1,917), and the northern part of Stjørna (population: 676) to form a new, larger municipality of Bjugn.[3]
