Langworth is a small village in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated 6 miles (10 km) north-east from the city and county town of Lincoln, and on the A158 road Lincoln to Skegness road. It is in the civil parish of Barlings.

Community[edit]

The village has one public house and two garages.

Langworth railway station, on the Great Central Railway Grimsby to Lincoln line, has closed, but the line still runs through the village, crossing the A158.

Langworth's Boulters Pimary School closed in 1989, after which its pupils transferred to the newly built Ellison Boulters School in neighbouring Scothern.

The village is in an area prone to flooding. The Environment Agency gives flood warnings for the Barlings Eau waterway, which runs just north-west of the village.[1] Particularly extensive flooding occurred in 2007.[citation needed]

Church

Langworth church is dedicated to St Hugh.[2] The church is a 1960-62 rebuilding, by Haynes and Johnson of Brigg, of the Walmsgate Hall chapel, itself built in 1901. The material from the original chapel couldn't be used although the previous footprint was kept, and lengthened. Retained from the earlier chapel was the barrel vault roof construction, the surrounds to the windows, and sliding doors with their handles at the west end. Also the original font, organ, altar canopy and bronze lamps, and a plaque to Dallas-Yorke, son of Thomas Yorke, to whom the chapel was a memorial, remain. Plaster decoration, part Art Nouveau, part Pre-Raphaelite style, was lost in the rebuilding; Pevsner's view was that with the decoration "the chapel was one of the outstanding ensembles in England of the style of 1900".[3]
