Langford is a straggling and picturesque village above the Trent marsh, 3 miles north-north-east of Newark, comprehending within its parish 146 inhabitants and 1,430 acres of land, of the rateable value of £2,453. The church, dedicated to St Bartholomew, is a perpetual curacy, of the value of £40, in the appropriation and patronage of Trinity College, Cambridge. The Rev. Joseph Mayor is the incumbent, and has about 30 acres of glebe, purchased with Queen Anne's Bounty. The church was re-pewed in 1841, at a cost of £150, raised by subscription, to which Lord Mddleton, the sole owner and lord of the manor, was a liberal contributor. Langford Hall is a handsome, modern mansion, near the village, and is the seat of Alfred Haffenden Esq. Slingsby Duncombe Esq. sold this and Wigsthorpe estate in 1832 to Lord Middleton, till which period Mr Duncombe resided at Langford Hall.
