About the memorial:
The war memorial at St Mary’s Church, Whitkirk is in the form of a lychgate. It is a grade II listed structure and is set in the north facing wall around St Mary’s Church. The timber roof, trusses and posts are reported to be of teak from decommissioned World War II battleships. The shingles are of Canadian Cedar and the base is constructed of stone. The gate was originally of timber, however, following vandalism of two plaques in 1970 these were replaced with the wrought iron gates and the plaques replaced in a different material.
