Underwood Church and Lychgate
Underwood Church and Lychgate
The church and lychgate were designed by the Birmingham 'Gothic' architect, J. A. Chatwin in the style of the 14th century. They were erected in 1889 after being commissioned at a cost of 5000 by the 7th Earl Cowper who was a British Liberal politician and also served as Lord Lieutenant of Ireland between 1880 and 1882. The church dedicated to St Michael & All Angels had the clock installed in 1920 as a memorial to the local men who died in the First World War. The spire is visible from the surrounding countryside and is notable for being covered by oak shingles.
