A lychgate would be positioned at the entrance of a churchyard.
I see no churchyard in the image, although it is conceivable there
used to be one.  A lychgate was where a corpse (aka lych) was
placed awaiting the funeral service, although they stopped being
used for that purpose when mortuaries were built.  In some parts
of the UK lychgates play a part in wedding ceremonies.

That's not a lychgate, despite looking a little like one.
