Langham   Winter 2011

 

 

Remembrance Sunday, November 13 2011

 

At the Village War Memorial on the wall of the Primary School, a short service and laying of a wreath ... now tied to a newly installed ring over the arch.

A few minutes later, at the Airfield Memorial, villagers were joined by a large contingent from the Airfield Historical Society, for the laying of wreaths and a short service.

Work on the Travellers site off Severalls Lane proceeds with indecent haste, with the units already up and in varying stages of finish.

Meanwhile, along the road,  a very wide footway being pushed towards Colchester.

On a sunny morning a photo of the redecorated 'Floral Dene', of Christmas card fame, in Park Lane. Either side are fresh attempts tp picture the village sign.

Views of the community field now include the old shop cabin, in its new setting as storage for items from the Bonfire Night, amongst others. Centre is 'Lyme Cottage, at Blacksmith's Corner.

The harvested beet has been put into a giant heap, and is then conveyed to heavy beet lorries that take their load whist still on the highway, in Greyhound Hill. This speeds matters no end and eliminates the muddy roads that go with beet harvesting. The one downside is, however, holdups for traffic every time a lorry fills up!

Overlooking the Stour valley, part of the woodland called Primrose Wood has been cut back ... to open views towards the waterworks and beyond. A new track cuts across the footpath track here, and there is a steep bank to hop up to regain the footpath.
