Väs­ter­pla­na church was built in the 12th cen­tu­ry, alt­hough some parts date from the 11th cen­tu­ry. The tower was added slight­ly later. 

The church acqui­red its pre­sent appea­ran­ce when it was exten­ded in the 18th cen­tu­ry. This work was car­ri­ed out by a local mas­ter sto­ne­ma­son, Per Jons­son, from Sten­ham­mar. The medi­e­val parts of the church, both the nave and chan­cel, are very well pre­ser­ved.Straight ahe­ad to the east is the ori­gi­nal chan­cel with its sto­ne altar, and in front of the altar is a pre­ser­ved medi­e­val win­dow in the Roma­nes­que sty­le. The chan­cel con­tains a remar­kab­le sto­ne font that is beli­e­ved to have been dona­ted to Väs­ter­pla­na church by Bishop Bengt the Good in the 11th century.
