Church of St Giles, Church Lane, Langton by Wragby
Grade II Listed church. A church is likely to have stood on the site in medieval times. There is a list of incumbents beginning around A.D. 1215 headed by a man called Audsen, appointed by the Prior and Convent of St. Mary, Bullington, of the Order of St. Gilbert of Sempringham. The oldest part is the tower of perpendicular style, therefore unlikely to have been built before 1335. The remainder of the church was erected in 1866 replacing a church of 1766. Stephen Langton, the man responsible for the Magna Carta was the son of Henry Langton of Langton by Wragby. He was born about 1165 and it is thought that the Manor House near the church is on the site of his birth.
