Langridge

"LANGRIDGE, a parish in the hundred of Bath-Forum, county Somerset, 4 miles N.W. of Bath, its railway station and post town. It is a small agricultural village situated under Lansdown Hill, on which stands a monument to Sir Bevill Granville, who was killed in the battle fought here in 1643. The soil is rocky and the surface diversified with hill and dale. The lower grounds are watered by a rivulet, and the higher well wooded. The tithes have been commuted for a rent-charge of £112. The living is a rectory* in the diocese of Bath and Wells, value £111. The church, dedicated to St. Mary Magdalene, is an ancient stone structure, with a square tower containing one bell. The interior of the church contains two Norman arches and two brasses, one bearing date 1427. There is a parochial school for both sexes, also a Sunday-school. Whilst rebuilding the rectory-house a silver-mounted battle-axe and several stone coffins were discovered."
