MILLENNIUM LYCHGATE

Millennium Lychgate (Church Preen, West Midlands) by Conservation architects Baart Harries Newall (BHN architects) based in Shrewsbury.
Millennium Lychgate
Self-build Project was Carried Out with the PCC of Church Preen, to Commemorate the Millennium.
 
The outline design was prepared by Baart Harries Newall, then developed into working drawings by PCC member Roy Torkington.
 
A small working party undertook the construction of the lychgate, with occasional assistance from a craftsman mason, and under a watching brief by the architects.
 
The oak was sourced in Herefordshire, and stored "in stick" in the church warden's barn to season.  The barn also provided the workshop in which the oak members were pre-fabricated prior to  assembly on site.
 
The project represents a tremendous achievement by the church wardens and their team, and has received a Civic Trust award
