KINGS LANGLEY LANGLEY HILL (South side) Ruins of Langley Palace in the garden of No. 80 (York Ridge)

GV II

Ruined walls and fragments of stonework. C16 or earlier. Uncoursed knapped flint walls with red brick angle, plinth offset and internal arched recesses. Limestone dressed stonework from arches and mullioned windows set into later walling attached to old walls. The ruins represent the NW corner of a flint walled building and stand to about 4M. The walls are about 600mm thick and have signs of internal plaster. They extend about 4M to S and 2M to E from corner where a lower wall with stonework fragments is attached, pierced by a stone archway of fragments. A royal palace existed here as early as 1299. Edmund of Langley; Duke of York, 5th son of Edward III, was born here in 1341. It remained a palace until the mid C15 and was given to the Duchess of York in 1469. It probably ceased to be used from after this. The upstanding ruins possibly formed part of the house built after the crown lease to Sir Charles Morrisson in 1580 and before 1591. It lasted until at least the late C17 and was the home of Lady Capel after her husband was executed by Oliver Cromwell. (RCHM(1911)135 no.3).
