Welcome to the Langley Burrell village website

Regretably, due to the coronavirus, Langley Burrell Village Hall will remain closed until further notice.

As soon as we are able to re-open we will do so and contact all of our regular users. In the meantime the village hall committee members would like to send good wishes to everyone during these difficult times and look forward to returning to business as usual as soon as possible.

In light of current circumstances we have sadly cancelled our village fete due to take place on the 20th June.

Langley Burrell is a small village located just north of Chippenham in Wiltshire, England UK.

The purpose of this website is to provide information, to both villagers and non-villagers, about Langley Burrell. The website is currently in the middle of being redesigned to give you information on a range of issues of interest in and around Langley Burrell.

Maud Heath's Monument

Situated just north of Chippenham, Langley Burrell is steeped in history. It is a small, pretty village notable in particular as one of the termini of Maud Heath’s Causeway, an ancient pathway linking nearby Bremhill with Chippenham. For many years the Georgian parsonage was the home of Reverend Robert Kilvert, father of the famous diarist Francis Kilvert, who from 1863 to 1864 and 1872 to 1876 was curate to his father here.

In the centre of the village stands the Langley Tap, a cosy and friendly village pub formerly known as The Brewery Arms but always known to locals simply as ‘The Tap’. This nickname stemmed from the fact that for many years the pub stood adjacent to Slade’s brewery and so the beer was said to be ‘on tap’.
