Langton Herring

Langton Herring is a small, but very pretty village. The village has a few original 17th and 18th century thatched cottages. It is quite a draw for artists and photographers. Known as the "thankful village" Langton Herring was one of the few villages spared any fatalities in the Great War. The village's local pub, The Elm Tree, offers excellent home-cooked food. It has a large beer garden, a large paddock for extra parking and is dog friendly. The pub has stories of smuggling and a possible hidden cellar used for contraband.
