Church of St Peter & St Paul
Church services are normally held on the fourth Sunday of the month at 11 am. Langton is well known for its annual candlelit carol service which takes place on the first Sunday after Christmas at 6pm and is followed by refreshments in the Village Hall. All are very welcome to this informal service which carries on a tradition dating from long before electricity came to Langton in the mid 1950’s.
Two concerts a year now take place in the candlelit Georgian church in May and September (see below). Visitors are most welcome and advance booking is strongly recommended as demand for the concerts is always very high.
The recently renovated Village Hall is the centre for some thriving activities, listed below, and is available for hire for suitable events.
The Langton Concerts have their own page so please look at Langton Concerts.

Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival
The 15th season of this well known annual walking festival features dozens of walks in many unspoilt and virtually unknown areas of the Wolds. It normally takes place towards the end in May each year (including a Bank Holiday) and in most years features walks over normally inaccessible parts of the the Langton Estate. If details are not shown on this website then check out the festival’s website at http://woldswalkingfestival.co.uk/
This year (2019) the Langton Walk will take place on Monday 20 May and will depart from America Farmyard (Grid reference TF391704) at 2 pm to visit the Bronze Age and Neolithic sites in the village which are not normally accessible. The sites will be explained by David Start, a well known archaoelogist. The return to the village will be via the Sheepwalks, with its famous views and down which Dr Samuel Johnson (of Dictionary fame) rolled with his young friend Bennet Langton in 1764. Dogs on leads welcome. Refreshments will be available in the Village Hall after the walk. Donations to the Lincolsnhire Wolds Walking Festival and Langton Parish Church will be welcome.

Extensive renovation work added modern kitchen and toilet facilities to the Village Hall in 2009 and there is a continuing programme of improvements to the building when funds allow.
The hall is now an attractive venue for all sorts of activities (meetings, parties, concerts and the like) and can be hired at very modest cost.
Anyone interested in hiring the hall should please contact Ian and Shirley Whitworth. (01790 754355 / 07899 037704 or firstname.lastname@example.org )
A new monthly Gardening Club will be starting on Thursday 27th June from 7 to 9pm at the village hall. It will be held on the last Thursday of every month throughout the year. Anybody with a passion for gardening is most welcome to join.
