Long Description:
Bell tower of St Andrew's church, Tur Langton, with one bell.

"In May 1864 the Hanbury Charity Trust decided to restore the three Langton Churches and the work was given to the Leicester Architects of Goddard & Son. Sir Charles Isham donated land for the building of a new church and Joseph Goddard (1840-1900) was the chief designer. He became Leicestershires leading architect in the 19th century and we have come across Goddard’s work in many Victorian renovations and rebuilds.

The large west broached tower is made of red brick."
