Long Description:
Just after the peer review I spotted this lychgate. It is imho a rather small one. It is about 4 by 2 meters, with a max height off approx 4 meters.. The roof is made of wood and covered with orange (typical Dutch) roof tiles. The lychgate is also the main entrance to the church yard. Allthough there is a lychgate, this church does not have a cemetary.

"De ERFSCHEIDING langs de Kanaalstraat en de Kon. Wilhelminakade bestaat uit een lage, door een ezelsrug afgedekte muur van (oranje)rode handvormsteen waalformaat in kruisverband met snijvoeg. Middenvoor, ter plaatse van het pad naar de hoofdingang, wijkt de muur met kwartronde hoeken terug ter weerszijden van een houten toegangspoort ("lychgate") bestaande uit een lage dubbele poort met uitgespaarde vierpasmotieven tussen twee geschoorde stijlen die een schilddak dragen waarop rode OVH-pannen."

Google translate:
"The church yard border along the Kanaalstraat and the Kon. Wilhelminakade consists of a low wall covered with roof tile (orange) red hand-shaped stone 'waal' format in a cross-band with a cutting joint. In the center front, near the path to the main entrance, the wall with quarter-round corners recedes on either side of a wooden entrance gate ("lychgate") consisting of a low double gate with recessed four-pass motifs between two braced posts that carry a hipped roof with red OVH- roof tiles."
