There was probably a church in Langham prior to 1066, the earliest parts of the present building date from the 13th century.  14th century work in the church is attributed to Simon de Langham, though no proof exists. The church of St Peter and St Paul, Langham, is said to be "a fine specimen of various styles of Gothic architecture" with a number of interesting features. Of the six bells, the oldest is a late mediaeval bell carrying the Latin inscription: "Sit Nomen Domini Benedictum" (Blessed be the name of the Lord) On the Patronal Feast day, the aisles of the church are strewn with hay. The Parish Registers date back to 1559 For further information about the building For further information about local Charities
