New Hutton war memorial lychgate © Yvonne Welch, 2011This war memorial lychgate consists of a rough-stone base constructed from from stones sourced from local quarries, topped by a varnished oak frame supporting a plain clay-tiled roof. On each of the stone pillar are plaques inscribed with dedications to the men of the New Hutton Parish who fought in World War I. The lychgate is situated on the pathway leading to the west entrance of St Stephens Church in Kendal, Cumbria.

New Hutton war memorial lychgate © Yvonne Welch, 2012In 2012, a grant of £1378.00 was offered for the repair of the lychgate which included removal of decaying sections of timber by splicing down to sound wood and inserting new sections of seasoned oak to match the existing structure. All moss and vegetation was then removed from the timber and the roof tiles and the wood was treated with a stain as per the original design.

New Hutton war memorial lychgate © Yvonne Welch, 2012The lychgate was originally unveiled on 26 June 1920 and was designed by Woolfall & Eccles Architects of Liverpool and constructed by local builder James Stubbs of Ghyll Mill, New Hutton.

The inscription plaque reads:

Erected by the Parishioners of New Hutton in grateful remembrance of those from this Parish who fought and fell in the Great War 1914-1918.

The other tablet lists the names of the fallen.
