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

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]
