Long Description:
Lychgate at St Margaret's church, Ilketshall St Margaret.

"The church comprises a nave and chancel without aisles, and an ancient round tower at the west end, in which are three bells. The edifice was covered till very lately with thatch, scarcely water-proof, which has recently given place to slate. The interior is neat, and reputably kept, but the fittings far inferior to what they should be, in a church so well endowed as this is. The fabric is probably very ancient, though the windows partake of the perpendicular character; and the only remarkable feature it possesses is the rather curious stone which forms the lintel of the chancel doorway. There is a narrow arch, now built up in the east wall, which probably led in former days to a chapel now destroyed. The family of Hunne, or Hunn, were formerly of some importance here, and bore for arms, a lion ramp. guardant."
