St Mary's Summerstown church lych gate restored
A church lych gate, of only two of it's kind in Wandsworth, has been repaired following a years of restoration work.
The historic gate in the St Mary's Summerstown churchyard, in Wimbledon Road, Tooting, was first built in the 1930's and serves as an entrance to the church, but was in danger of collapsing.
The parish funded it's restoration with contributions from the Wandsworth Riverside Environmental Fund (WREF) and Wandsworth Council.
Work has been carried out at intervals since 2009 by St Cuthbert Conservation, which has included repairs to the timber frame, reroofing and a new brick floor.
