taken 6 years ago, near to Headless Cross, Worcestershire, Great Britain

Lych Gate to former burial ground, Rectory Road, Headless Cross, Redditch
Lych Gate to former burial ground, Rectory Road, Headless Cross, Redditch
A little plaque on the front reads: "1861 / Lych-Gate / Built by subscription for the / burial ground donated by / Baroness Windsor". It was consecrated in the same year (this information came from 'Jack', who found it in the 1900 Kelly's Directory of Worcestershire). The plaque itself is of an engraved material with the text in a Gill Sans typeface, introduced in 1930: perhaps it is a replacement for the original. LinkExternal link
