History of the name

Sir Thomas De Lucy, Lord of Langley, was born and bred a valiant Knight. One of King Edward III's most trusted captains, he distinguished himself at the Battle of Crecy.

In recognition of his services, the King gave him 40 sacks of wool. Sir Thomas decided to rebuild his house at Langley into a strong defensive fortress capable of keeping the Scots at bay.

He financed his building with the spoils of the French Wars and with compensation from the Royal Exchequer. Sir Thomas commenced work on building the magnificent fortress of Langley Castle 1350 and the work was completed in 1365.
