A pair of footpath shots in the southern corner of the recreation ground, the prelude to a thorough footpath survey this spring! The airfield memorial in hard light on the right.

30 January 2010   Boxted walk

 

   

   

 

 

 

A short, 1.8 mile, trot across Black Brook to Boxted church, left, and along Church Street towards Cheshunts, right,  before descending, centre, towards Black Brook and climbing through the woods towards Rivers Hall. Back across the field to Cook's Hill and then along the icy, but melting, road to the car at the bottom of  Carter's Hill.

The scene is set!

     
 

 

A good time was had by all, and the night raised just over 600.

Between 2-3 pm the telephone lines from the Horkesley exchange went dead. From talking to the workmen on site, it appears that the cable running through Hundred Lane was cut by thieves at that time. They then tried to pull the cable through, usually using a truck, but this time they were out of luck and it wouldn't budge. 

However a lot of damage was done, and the above photo shows a couple of technicians rejoining the parted strands, a real cat's cradle of wires. The team had been on-site from 3 am, I was told. Service was restored around 7pm. I think the firm did the best they could for us, and thanks to all concerned!

Rainbow Lodge, in Chapel Road, looking elegant in the spring sunshine, unlike Gridleys, seen still in its winter plumage of tarpaulins. The gas marker, centre, is a source of considerable irritation to me - surely the concrete marker is sufficient?

The magnolia is always a welcome sign of Spring bursting through, as are the polyanthus welcome for their colour.

Langham is soon to have another business centre completed and is now recruiting tenants. Park Farm Business Centre in park Lane from the front, left, and rear, right.

There's something for the horses to graze on behind Park Lane/Wick Road, although the season is still in the blossom stage at St Margaret's Cross and up at the church.

Potatoes are the chosen crop in the new mega-field in the centre of the village. Here the de-stoning machinery was active for days, and five or six machines were busy harrowing, shaping, planting and fertilising the crop. What is only too lacking at the moment - is rain of course!

A really nice thatch job at  Floral Dene  in Park Lane, left. On the right is the footpath, FP 35 getting itself a new boundary of Leylandii next to the industrial area.
