Old Mill house, left, and Wick Road  ... now quieter with no through traffic during the sewer repairs. In the centre is the junction of Chapel Road/Old Mill Road and High Street, in the process of losing the last of its leaves.

Plenty of run-off in Langham Lane at Runkin's Corner. There is a particular problem here, apart from blocked ditches and watercourses, in that there appears to be a spring intent on surfacing directly under the road! Filling-in and forgetting only lasts for a little while!

The first, and many hope last, snows of the winter! Either side of the Community Shop are scenes from Langham Lane, down by Runkin's Corner.

School Road, in a relatively quiet mood, in the absence of all through traffic, is having one coppiced Hawthorn removed, left and centre, whilst the sewerage works commence on their second major excavation; the first being a mighty 5' by 4' by 17' deep!

The aim is to clear the overgrown land opposite the Primary School, maintained by the Parish Council since the Coronation of 1936, in order to ready the area for a commemoration of the Great War, 1914-18. A Heritage Group has been set up to consider the ways in which the village can mark the 100th anniversary of the opening of hostilities on August 4th 1914, the first day of the Battle of the Somme on July 1st 1916, and the signing of the Armistice on 11th November 1918. These three dates have been adopted by the government for its commemorations.

Langham Church, left, becomes more visible during the winter months, whilst the approach to the church becomes a landscape of branches, whose shapes are largely overlooked during the growing season.
