West Langdon  Kent


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described West Langdon like this:

LANGDON (WEST), a parish in Dover district, Kent; 1½ mile W of the Deal and Dover railway, and 4 N of Dover. Post-town, Dover. Acres, 698. Real property, £829. Pop., 106. Houses, 24. The property is divided among a few. A white canonry was found here, in 1192, by William de Auberville; went, at the dissolution, to the Archbishop of Canterbury, in exchange for other property; and has left a few ivy-covered walls. The living is a p. curacy in the diocese of Canterbury. Value, £47. Patron, the Archbishop of Canterbury. The church has long been in a ruinous condition.
