All Saints' Church, Low Moor Road, Langley Park (Langley Park)

All Saints' Church is located in the centre of Langley Park, on Low Moor Road, in County Durham. The church was built in 1886-7 to a design by E.L Swatman of London. It consists of nave with south porch, chancel with vestry to its south, and an organ chamber/vestry plus toilet subsequently added to its north. External walls are of red brick with stone dressings, plastered internally. Roofs are covered with Welsh slate. A slate-covered fleche or spirelet surmounts the east end of the nave roof, and the east wall of the nave above the chancel is timber-framed with the elaborate framing expressed internally and tile-hung externally. The style is a very plain derivation from the Early English lancet period (1). The church is known to contain a number of features dedicated as war memorials (2).
