St George Higher Langham  

Between Buckhorn Weston and Gillingham lies a hamlet called Langham. At the eastern end, near the road and amongst some magnificent tall trees, rests the only thatched church in Dorset. This tiny building was completed in 1921 as a memorial to the men from the nearby estate who laid down their lives in the First World War. It was designed by C.E.Ponting, who was the diocesan architect of Salisbury.* The charming interior is very simple and there is no electricity. Here is great tranquillity in a lovely setting.* Also by or modified by Ponting: Beer Hackett, Bourton, Bradpole, Dorchester (St. Mary), Gillingham, Ibberton, Kingston Lacey, West Stafford, Weymouth (St. Martin).     The Trust gratefully acknowledges images and text by Robin Adeney ©
