Langham   Spring 2013

2 April 2013 

 

   

 

The sunshine drew me out to Gun Hill and past its junction with Dedham Road, left, and penetrated through the leafless branches to East Lodge, right. The gates were shut, but the side door accommodates walkers on the Essex Way, centre.

There has been a good deal of tree-cutting, and replanting, in the hanger below Church Farm. The Essex Way footpath has been 'corrected' to run up the newly-cut track, so everyone can see some woodland management in action. We have, I feel, far too many mature and over-mature trees just falling over and rotting (good for wildlife doubtless) rather than being put to productive use, so I rejoice in this management.

Dedham Road is flanked by The Old House and Martin's Farm to the right, or north, of the road. Little martin's shows up in the distance on the bend in the road.

Church Farm, with Langham church in the background. There is a Constable painting, one of several called 'Glebe Farm' that depicts the two buildings, but Constable mischievously re-arranged the foreground topography!

More visits to the church to obtain the right angle to duplicate the Constable painting, this time on a clear Spring morning!

The stile of FP26 has been revealed from the enclosing holly tree, left, but has had its wire netting broken, presumably for the easier passage of dogs. Such criminal damage does not encourage landowners to maintain footpath furniture.

A quick check to see the state of the bluebells on FP28 towards Hill Farm from Bardles Barn, left and right. On the way the lovely display of potted flowers in chapel Road took my eye!
