Full Description

The earliest reference to Langton Lodge appears to be in the Patent Rolls. On 10th June 1474 a grant for life was made to John Gleve of the office of forester and keeper of the herd of the king's deer "at Langton Herber". Various references thereafter, first appearance on a map is the tapestry map of 1632. The lodge may have fallen out of use by 1690, and Chapman (2) shows a tree on the site. This was an elm, noted by Rooke, which had died by 1892. (1)
One lodge and two parcels of ground lying about the same, called Langton Arbor. (3)
