All Saints, Langton Green Church

Image Source: John Vigar


A fascinating nineteenth century church designed by Sir Gilbert Scott in 1862 and enlarged by his son John Oldrid Scott in 1902. It sits on the edge of the village green of a village that first grew as an extension of Tunbridge Wells, on the Toll Road between Tunbridge Wells and Maresfield. The church is built of sandstone quarried locally (in fact much of Tunbridge Wells is built of stone from the same outcrop). The visitor comes to the church to see the excellent stained glass windows designed early in his career by William Morris in partnership with Edward Burne Jones. These date from the original building of the church. By the time of the extension of the church this style of glass was beginning to go out of fashion and Charles Eamer Kempe was brought in to design the new east window, the subject of which is the Tree of Jesse.
