KL Book

We all know how lucky we are to live in our village. A church, a school, a pub, and some wonderful buildings all around us. But there’s mysteries too – why are there buildings from the 15th century, and yet the church is as late as the 19th century? Why is the chapel older than the church? Many villagers will know of at least two histories of Kington Langley that have been written – the book many of us bought in 1995 written by Sheila Colhoun, and an earlier 19th century.
