All Saints Church, Langton Long Blandford
Dorset OPC 2011

Langton Long Blandford is a parish and small hamlet in the district of Blandford on the River Stour, 1 mile SE of Blandford. The manor, with Langton House, belonged to the Farquharson family. A lepers' hospital was in the parish before the time of Edward I. 

All Saints Parish Church was rebuilt between 1861 and 1864 by T.H.Wyatt, at a cost of about 3,000, replacing an earlier church on the same site. It is generous for the tiny size of the hamlet it serves, however, when it was built it catered for the nearby Langton Long House, a large mansion with an army of servants. The mansion was demolished in 1949. The church is in the later English style, cruciform, of flint with stone bands; and has a pinnacled tower, 57 feet high. It has a fine Victorian interior.
