Langley Burrell is a village and civil parish just north of Chippenham, Wiltshire, England. The parish includes the hamlet of Kellaways, to the east on the opposite bank of the Bristol Avon.

Notable buildings[edit]

The Anglican Church of St Andrew (Early English and Perpendicular) is Grade I listed.[2][3]

The small Church of St Giles at Kellaways was built c.1800 to replace an earlier building, first recorded in 1304.[4]

Maud Heath's Causeway, Kellaways

Wick Hill in the parish is one of the termini of Maud Heath's Causeway, a pathway which provided a route to Chippenham market. The arches which carry the path over the floodplain of the Avon are Grade II* listed.[5]

Also Grade II* listed:

  • The 17th century manor house at Kellaways.[6]
  • The Georgian parsonage.[7] This was for many years the home of the Rev. Robert Kilvert, father of the diarist Francis Kilvert, who from 1863 to 1864 and 1872 to 1876 was curate to his father here.
  • Langley House, 1780.[8]
