About Us

In around 1760, Rev William Hanbury, Rector of St Peter’s church in Church Langton, created his charity.

Rev Hanbury was a man of vision (and also some controversy!) and sought to run his charity for the benefit of people in The Langtons and surrounding area. The charity exists to this very day, reformed and revised at various times in order to keep pace with a modern world and changing regulations, but overseen over the decades by volunteer trustees from within The Langton Villages.
