"Lyke", an ancient British
word for "corpse", is related
to the German leich and is the root from which came "lych
", as in the Lych
Gate of a church, which often had seats and a bench so both the coffin and the coffin bearers could rest
into the burial ground or the church itself.
Wake Walk is a forty-mile challenge walk, to be completed
