Parish History[edit | edit source]

Great Langton St Andrew is an Ancient Parish in the county of Yorkshire. Other places in the parish include: Little Langton.

LANGTON, GREAT, a parish, in the union of Northallerton, wapentake of Gilling-East, N. riding of York; including the township of Little Langton, and containing 252 inhabitants, of whom 160 are in Great Langton township, 5½ miles (W. N. W.) from Northallerton. It comprises by computation 1550 acres, whereof 750 are in Great Langton township. The few houses here that give name to the parish, are so near the brink of the river Swale, that they are in frequent danger of being swept away. The church is a small edifice, without aisles or tower, and stands in a retired situation about half a mile from the village. The old rectory-house, and two acres of glebe, are said to have been washed away by the river. [1]

In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson, Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Great Langton like this:

LANGTON (GREAT), a township and a parish in Northallerton district, N. R. Yorkshire. The township lies on the river Swale, 4 miles NW of Ainderby r. station, and 5½ NW by W of Northallerton; and has a post-office under Northallerton. Acres, 856. Real property, £1,063. Pop., 137.
