What is The Angel, Langport?
The Angel public house was built in 1760 and in recent times was renamed "The Old Custom House" because at one time it allegedly housed the custom office for Langport. A few years ago it closed as a pub and was unoccupied and deteriorating for nearly two years before it was bought by the Langport Church Community Trust (registered charity no 1106686). The trust intend to re-develop the Grade 2 listed building and turn it into a community centre, reinstating the original name "The Angel". The intention is to create a welcoming and accepting public space in the heart of Langport, where a range of activities and facilities will be available to all.
The main downstairs area has already been renovated and developed into the Angel Cafe and there are a wide variety of activities and community groups who already use the Angel as a base. Check our "What's On" page to see what is happening!
Future plans will include meeting rooms, a hall, quiet area, youth area, and a large hireable hall space that local clubs and societies might use. There will be disabled access incorporated into the building. There is a large garden which is also being improved.
Any development will retain the historic structure of the building, and seek to retain the informality and accessibility of the Angel's historic roots as a pub.
