Langsett

LANGSETT, a township, in the parish of Penistone, union of Wortley, wapentake of Staincross, W. riding of York, 5½ miles (S. W. by W.) from Penistone; containing 303 inhabitants. It is bounded on the west by the county of Chester, and comprises by computation nearly 4400 acres. An inclosure act was obtained in 1820; but the greater portion of the land is still uncultivated, affording only rough pasture. The principal sources of the river Don are within the limits of the township.

Transcribed from A Topographical Dictionary of England, by Samuel Lewis, 7th edition, published in 1848.
