Langford, Nottinghamshire

Langford is a village and civil parish in Nottinghamshire, England. It is located 4 miles north-east of Newark-on-Trent and two miles East from The River Trent. It is based on A1133 which comes off of the A46. Although Langford is currently located two miles from The River Trent it has not always been this way. In ‘1575 there was a cataclysmic flood’ which altered the course of the Trent which meant Langford and Holme were now on the same side of the river.
