King writes nothing known of castle mentioned by Leland. Leland wrote 'Langar, where next to the church is a stone house battlemented like a castle which belongs to Lord Scrope'.

Gatehouse Comments

This is the same as Langham, of which Leland writes "Tipetote Le Scrope had the castell of Langham in Notinghamshire, where was a principall howse of the Tipetots (Tiptoft)." This appears to have been a late embattled house on the site of C19 Langar Hall, which may incorporate some parts of the C16 house.
