A CD containing the 1875 Ordnance Survey maps of Langham is on sale in the Community Shop. You are able to view the map at three levels of magnification, with the highest being at the original 25 inches to the mile  .. and so you can see what the village looked like 140 years ago ... and perhaps spot where your house is now!

 

Cost is 5

Opening of the Langham War Dead Panel on 30 October 2015

 

 

 

Ian Holland and Simon Gallup, who researched the names on the panel, reveal the finished memorial in the entrance to the Community Centre on 30 October 2015, arranged to coincide with the monthly coffee morning.

 

The complete panel as a .pdf file  

 

 

 

 

Above is an except from the panel, showing the life of the first of the names, Albert Goodridge.

 

 

 

 

To commemorate the start of the Great War, a showing of 'Private Peaceful' was organised, with the invaluable help of the Film Committee. It was an invaluable insight into rural life at the eve of the conflict, as well as the harrowing story of the principal.
