Long Description:
Lychgate at All Saints' church, North Ferriby. A supporting post is dated 1980 (another initialled M K H). It does not appear to have any memorial linked to it, although in 2018, to mark 100 years since the end of WW1, hundreds of poppies were displayed on it.
It is made of wood, with a slate roof covering.

[The church] "is an early work by John Loughborough Pearson (1817-97), constructed in 1846-8 at a cost of £3,039. “The building is largely constructed of local brown sandstone [though it stands above chalk]. The walls are made up of stones of irregular shape and size at uneven height intervals… and are reinforced by Mexborough stone dressings…” The church guide (4th edition, by D. Bulmer) goes on to describe the style as “Middle Pointed or Decorated” though it is more accurately represented as the geometrical style of the Early English/Decorated transition.

The church was paid for by public subscription and a substantial donation from Ann Turner of Ferriby House (ibid.). The patrons should have been well satisfied with their commission, for besides an aisled nave with N. & S. porches and a short chancel with a N. vestry, Pearson provided a W. tower with a broach spire, which has the distinction of being Pearson’s first steeple. The spire has a tier of lucarnes in the cardinal directions and an exaggerated entasis which has the effect of making it appear slightly bloated, but the church is certainly impressive as one approaches from the north."
