Langton is a village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated 1.5 miles (2.4 km) west from the town of Horncastle.

The village church is a Grade II listed building dedicated to St Margaret, and is a small structure built of greenstone, limestone and red brick. The original church on the site was medieval. It was restored in 1750 and subjected to Victorian restoration in 1890 by W Scorer. Foundations of a tower can be seen on the outside of the west wall.[1][2]

Langton Windmill was built of red brick in 1861, and ceased working in 1936.[3]
