Lychgates and Depositories
Managed By: Icon Here The Lych Mob
Description:
Originally Lychgates were a covered gateway used as the temporary resting place for a casket or corpse awaiting burial. They generally were located at a cemetery or church to provide protection from the elements. Depositories, though differing in appearance and placement, served essentially the same purpose.

in Lychgates and Depositories

The original lychgate was constructed at some point between 1680 and 1860. In 1892, as the churchyard grew in size, the lychgate was moved to a new position on the south side of the boundary. It is not clear whether this was a new lychgate or not.
