Langton by Wragby is a small village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated approximately 1 mile (1.6 km) south-east from Wragby, and on the A158 Horncastle road. It is in the civil parish of Hatton.

Langton Wood is a small, previously extra-parochial area, now included in the parish.[1]

The church is dedicated to St Giles, and is of 14th-century origin, although it was rebuilt in 1866. It is a Grade II listed building.[2][3]

Langton Court is the former vicarage, now a house, built in the middle of the 18th century with some 19th-century additions. It is a Grade II listed building.[4][5]

The early 13th-century Archbishop of Canterbury, Stephen Langton, was the son of Henry Langton of Langton by Wragby, and may have been born in a moated farmhouse west of the church.[6]
