Langbaurgh West

Langbaurgh West
Status Division (Wapentake)

Langbaurgh West was a division of the Wapentake of Langbaurgh in the North Riding of the ancient County of Yorkshire.[1] The area along with Langbaurgh East forms the Anglo-Saxon baronial Liberty of Cleveland, England (not to be confused with the County of Cleveland of 1974 to 1996) and roughly covers the modern districts of Middlesbrough, Redcar & Cleveland, the southern portion of Stockton-on-Tees, the northern parts of Hambleton (Great Ayton, Stokesley) and the northern parts of the Borough of Scarborough.[1][2]

From the most North-Westerly point, The West Wapentake's approximate boundary started from Yarm across to Eston (and the modern Grangetown area), following south the boundary of Lanbaurgh East, then South-west past Stokesley and back up to Craven and Yarm. The West Wapentake covered roughly the area of modern day Middlesbrough, South Stockton and the northern most parts of Hambleton.[1][2]
