Where is Langdon Hills?
Langdon Hills is a township located in the Borough of Basildon district in Essex, England. It is contiguous with the Basildon continuous urban area.
It is located south of Laindon railway station on the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway. It is the location of the 400-acre (1.6 km2) Langdon Hills Country Park, which is in the unitary authority of Thurrock. In 1767, Arthur Young commented on the view from Langdon Hills
North of the railway station and line, also in the Borough of Basildon, is Laindon. Laindon and Langdon Hills are part of the Basildon post town.
Until its abolition in 1936, Langdon Hills was a civil parish, part of the Orsett Rural District.
In 1931 it covered an area of 1,816 acres (7.35 km2) and had a population of 2,103. 100 years earlier, in 1831, the population was 224 and the area covered was 1,850 acres (7.5 km2).
In 1936, it became part of the Thurrock Urban District. In 1974 the Thurrock Urban District was split with most of the Langdon Hills area going to Thurrock District and the smaller but more built up part to the north that was within Basildon New Town going to Basildon District.
The village has a church (St. Johns Church), two schools (Great Berry Primary School and Lincewood School). It has a nature reserve stretching down to Laindon. It also has a Tesco superstore in the village boundaries. Langdon Hills has a small village area as the new district of Great Berry is placed just north of Tesco.
