Pretty. I can't think I've ever seen such a gate before.

Thanks Who. These types of gates can be found at many old churches around the country. If you click my "Gates" tag you will find this is the third example I have shot so far.

ps: I thought I had already "favourited" you but my mistake has been rectified.

This type of gate is found at a lot of old churches with graveyards. The word "Lych" is from the Old English and means "corpse".

Thanks for visiting.

ps: I realised I didn't have you in my favourites. This omission has now been corrected and not just because of your recent "Lady" shots. ;)

A double response because I thought I had forgotten to click "Send comment" after the first one. Doh!
