Long Description:
Lychgate and bell tower of All Saints' church, Great Bourton, designed by architect William White, 1882/3.

"In 1883 William White designed the lych-gate and Bell Tower which were a memorial gift to the Church. They are in gothic style with the stone gateway carrying the open work timber tower. With its steeply pitched roof the tower is a landmark on the western approach to the village and from the steep uphill road on the east it stands prominently on the skyline."
