The war memorial, in remembrance of the men of Langold lost in the Second World War, was unveiled on 30 October 1949 by Col JN Chaworth-Musters of Annesley Hall and dedicated by the vicar, the Revd RJ Spencer. The architect was I Ilsley (of Anston). It stands in front of the Royal Legion public house. The memorial originally had a sundial attached to the top, but this is noted as missing in 2014.
Langold war memorial, designed by I. Ilsley and unveiled in 1949, is listed at Grade II for the following principal reason:
* Historic interest: as an eloquent witness to the tragic impact of world events on the local community, and the sacrifice it made in the conflicts of the C20.
