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.
