1 The possible extent of the Medieval settlement, based on the first edition 6″ Ordnance Survey map of 1886, 38 NW, excluding the possible shrunken settlement WA 1104.

Ref 22,26 Iudichael holds 1 1/2 hides in Langley. Land for 2 ploughs. In lordship 2, with 1 slave. 3 villagers and 4 smallholders with 2 ploughs. Meadow 12 acres; woodland 1 league long and 1/2 league wide. The value was 30s; now 40s. Ernwy held it freely.
3 It seems to be a two centre village on the 1886 map; one little area north of the Manor Farm, and another to the northwest. There is no ridge and furrow plotting for the parish, and the RAF photo only shows a small definite area to the southwest, which does not abut the village. Domesday indicates a modest sized settlement. There is no church .
