About Kings Langley

Kings Langley is a historic village and civil parish in Hertfordshire, England. It is located 21 miles northwest of central London to the south of the Chiltern Hills and now part of the London commuter belt. The village is divided between two local government districts by the River Gade with the larger western portion in the Borough of Dacorum and smaller part, to the east of the river, in Three Rivers District.It was once the location of Kings Langley Palace, a royal palace of the Plantagenet kings of England. The 12th-century parish church of All Saints’ houses the tomb of Edmund of Langley, the first Duke of York. The place-name Langley is first attested here in a Saxon charter of circa 1050, where it appears as Langalega. It is spelled Langelai in the Domesday Book of 1086 and is recorded as Langel’ Regis in 1254. The name means ‘long wood or clearing’. A Roman villa has been excavated just south of the village. The town was probably part of the lands of Abbey of St. Albans, although actual records have been lost. At the Norman conquest the manor was given to William’s half brother Robert, Count of Mortain who let it to one Ralf. It is around the manor that the present village developed as a linear village lying on the old road from London to Berkhamsted and the Midlands of England. In the Domesday Book of 1086, Langley was in the hundred of Danish. Around 1276, the manor was purchased by Queen Eleanor and the palace was built on the hill above the village to its west with a deer park extending to its south. This gave the village its link to royalty, first being renamed Langley Regina after its sponsoring queen, and then later changed to Langley Regis or later still by the added epithet “Kings”. The Church of All Saints was built during the 12th century on the site of an earlier church. The body of King Richard II was buried here for a time after his probable murder at Pontefract Castle in 1400. The 18th-century Sparrows Herne Turnpike road traversed the Chilterns via the valley of the River Gade and ran down the village high street. The 16th century Saracen’s Head public house is a coaching inn which flourished in this period. The Grand Union Canal dating from 1797, and 1838, London and Birmingham Railway which later became the West Coast Main Line, pass just east of the village at Kings Langley railway station. 20th-century housing developments have led to the village spreading out on either side of the main road. The A41 has now been diverted west of the village leaving the high street to local traffic for the first time in centuries. During the Second World War, the village was home to the secret headquarters in Britain of the Polish Underground army based at Barnes Lodge just off the Hempstead Road near Rucklers lane.The M25, the London orbital motorway, passes just south of the village on an imposing viaduct across the River Gade valley. To the north of junction 20 with the A41, a dual-carriageway bypasses Kings Langley and continues to the south of Tring where it flows into the original motorway-standard by-pass. The old route through Kings Langley is now classified as the A4251.
