Old Langho Church
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The interior stonework is very well crafted, and includes a piscina, font, windows, and carvings. The high quality of the carving suggests that most of these pieces were salvaged from the ruins of Whalley Abbey and simply reinstalled here. This may include the timber roof and bits of medieval stained glass in the chancel.
One feature that did not come from the abbey are the Jacobean benches, which feature some extremely good carvings on the bench ends, which include the date of construction and initials.
Langho Old Church is not in regular use for worship and is cared for by the Churches Conservation Trust.
