Langford Mill on the River Blackwater
The place-name 'Langford' is first attested in the Domesday Book of 1086, where it appears as Langheforda.
Langford was a possession of Beeleigh Abbey until 6 June 1536 when during the dissolution of the monasteries, King Henry VIII removed the property from the abbey's ownership. The Langford and Ulting railway station on the Witham-Maldon branch line was open from 1848 until 1964 when it was closed as part of the Beeching closures.
The local parish church is St Giles. The exact age of the church is not known, but it is generally considered to be of Norman construction. The church was restored in 1881.
The Museum of Power is located in the former Southend Waterworks Langford Pumping Station. The museum also has a miniature railway, which offers passenger rides.
