A fallen tree across Hundred Lane has been cut up and tidied away, keeping the bridleway open.

The new harvest in the village is onions, that has brought new and sophisticated machinery to bear .. and they are large - as seen by the meeting of a tractor/trailer and some parents waiting for the school bus. Only a very few fell off the trailers .. but they cooked up fine!

After quite a long struggle, a litter bin has been obtained for the impromptu bus stop in Moor Road.

I was surprised to see this collection of HGV's  outside the industrial area in School Road, although I have since been informed that this occurrence is by no means irregular.

I collected some flak from one worker for having the temerity to photograph the illegal and dangerous parking practices!

The problem of connecting School Road with a continuous  footway, is possibly going to be solved by a route along the north of the road opposite the industrial area. The crossing to the southern footway is planned to be exactly where the HGV's have been parking!

Looking for details of building construction for the VDS report, the church proved a source of some interest.

The porch on the south side of the church, and a nearby buttress, both had attractive textures.

Church Farm has a wealth of details, including this, apparently modern, pargetting.

The airfield track in the field behind Moor Road.

The mellowing influence of an autumn sun plays upon the  gate to Floral Dene.

 

 

 

 

 

The footpath to nowhere, from Park Lane into a ploughed field. Most walkers use the airfield perimeter track!

Ian Sutherland arrived for his stint at the shop!

Afternoon parking of parents collecting their children from the school extends well beyond the industrial area and makes School Road very problematical at this time. A solution to the walkway problem, enabling parents to park at the Community Centre, is pressing.

The fight to save the Post Office is on! At a meeting of the RCCE in Chelmsford on Tuesday 30 October a number of local councillors and sub-postmasters learned how to couch protesting statements in the most effective way. Individual letters were urged - but all need to be based on hard facts, especially any difficulties in transport to alternative venues for these services.

A good deal of rubber was laid down probably by a van failing to negotiate the lethal off-junction at Langham Oak, who clearly went over the grass and took out the plastic direction indicator.

Traffic counters have been installed at several locations around the village - this one is in Park Lane next to the A12.

Unfortunately, after Bonfire Night at the Community Centre field (and a very successful one at that!) and for the second year running, vandals attacked some of the fixtures left out overnight. Damage was worst to the sparkler equipment, and the fencing.

The fire was used to ruin a section of fence and the circular, in yellow, light-bulb holder .. whilst the bulbs were thrown onto the tennis courts.
