Lych gate, Horbury Cemetery, Horbury, West Yorkshire

Another Horbury mystery solved? You might have seen this inscription on the Lych Gate at Horbury cemetery and wondered what it was meant to signify? A stone mason was working up at the cemetery when he heard the new church clock at St Peters chime for the first time, after the work described above had been completed. He recorded the event on the Lych Gate: “Nov 15th 1899 N.C. (new clock) F.C. (first chime) 3 pm.” My thanks to Christine Wigglesworth for solving the mystery.

Lych Gate, All saints' church, Crofton

All Saints' Church is a cruciform church built in the 15th century. Sited on one of the highest points in the village, it can be seen for miles around. The church is built on an East-West line. The rising sun shines through the east window and the setting sun through the west.
Tradition that the church was moved from a site at the bottom of the hill around 1430 by Richard
Fleming, Bishop of Lincoln.
To the right of the Lych Gate are pair of old wooden stocks or pillory which were used as a punishment for criminals, and the miscreant would be locked in place, pelted with rotten fruit and sentenced to stay in locks for hours.

Lych Gate, St Mary & St Michael, Whitley Lower, Kirklees, Dewsbury

An Anglican parish church in the benefice of Thornhill and Whitley Lower, whose patron is the Lord Savile (a major historic landowner in the area).
The church, although Norman in most of its architectural style, only dates from 1847, with many early 20th century fittings, and there does not appear to have been an earlier church on the site. It is listed grade 2.
