All Saints' Church lychgate, Wellington
All Saints' Church lychgate, Wellington
When deciding on a design for their war memorial - a huge number were constructed in the years following the First World War - most towns and villages opted for a stone cross on a plinth (although there were many different designs). Wellington chose something different, building this attractive lychgate which provides access to All Saints' churchyard from Church Street. It was unveiled in 1922 and is in striking contrast to the neoclassical architecture of the church itself. It contains the names of the men of the parish who fell in the First World War; later those from the Second World War were added. Today the building is grade II listed.
