Langbar Grange, situated in Langbar Approach, is a brick built block with 15 floors, built to a height of 44 metres in 1966. When these houses were originally built they were designed to be all-electric, hence no chimneys.

Langbar Towers, demolition (Swarcliffe)
Colour image2003. View shows Langbar Towers in the process of demolition. This 15-storey tower block on Swarcliffe Avenue was one of ten in the area demolished during the 2000s. Because of its close proximity to other housing it could not be demolished by explosion so it needed to be taken apart in stages. Ash Tree Grange was demolished at the same time. In the background is another block of flats, Langbar Grange, which was demolished in 2006.
