Laughton is a historic village and according to j31.co.uk, a website detailing towns and villages in the area, one of the first mentions is in the will of a Saxon called Wolfric in about 870 A.D.

The website says Laughton’s name is possibly derived from the Saxon for Law Town as evidence suggests it was a centre of Saxon jurisdiction – there was a Saxon Great Hall and an earth and timber moat and baily fort on the top of castle hill, next to the church.

j31.co.uk adds in the Domesday Book, Laughton was reported to have 33 villains – the wealthiest peasants - six smallholders and 15 plough teams, which was impressive for the time and along with its church, castle and hall indicates Laughton was a very important place more than 1,000 years ago.

This patio area looks ideal for entertaining. It looks perfect for sun worshippers!
