The Lychgate


About the Lychgate:

Complete in 1919, the Lychgate serves as the parish memorial to those Whiston residents who fell in the two World Wars. The oak used in its construction was taken from the 15th Century bell frame that was removed from the tower in 1915. So part of the Lychgate are in fact amongst the oldest items at Whiston Parish Church.

The church is currently developing plans to refurbish the Lychgate in time of its centenary in 2019.
