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 now deserve their own page so please look at Langton Concerts.
The next concert will be on Saturday 21 May 2016 at 6.30 pm.
Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival
The 12th Festival will take place from Saturday 21 May to Sunday 5 June, when more than 115 different walks are being organised in the Wolds to make the most of the lovely and completely unspoilt Wolds landscape, providing lots of opportunities to get out and about.
As part of the Festival there will be a walk at Langton on Saturday 28 May starting at 9 a.m. from America Farmyard, next to the church in the middle of the village. The walk will follow the route of Langton’s parson when he walked to services in the neighbouring hamlet of Sutterby until about the 1940’s. Starting at Langton’s Old Rectory the route passes near some former Langton Halls and and the pump house which used to pump water uphill from a little beck to Grange Farm, Langton (about a mile away near Ulceby Cross). The half way point is Sutterby church which has been the subject of extensive research by the Spirit of Sutterby project. The return route is along the top of the Sheep Walks with their unusual strip lynchets (terracing) which was admired by Samuel Johnson when he visited his young friend Bennett Langton in 1764.
Refreshments & light lunch will be available in the Village Hall afterwards.
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 and can be hired at very modest cost.
Anyone interested in hiring the hall should please contact Ian and Shirley Whitworth. (01790 754355 or firstname.lastname@example.org )
