Langham   Autumn 2013

 

4 September 2013

 

Potatoes being harvested just north of the Dedham Road. There was no waste, for at the end of the row both drivers got out and picked up those that the harvester could not reach!

The long-awaited opening of the 'Shepherd and Dog', now rebranded 'The Shepherd'. Much spruced-up outside, and with a completely gutted and re-decorated interior, the area thronged with crowds for the opening event.

In Wick Road the vandalised bench has been replaced, and the display of flowers in planters did not disappoint ... again. In School Road the lowering of a garden hedge produces new, or merely lost, views ... and a deal more light!

The wooded trail, now instated as a footpath and part of the Essex Way, from Church Farm down the slope to meet the path following the valley sides from Boxted.

Loading beet over the hedge and into lorries waiting in Park Lane. This does do away with muddy tractors making a nuisance of themselves, but best done during the quiet times outside rush hour!

Ripened grapes at The Granary (I do keep an eye on them!) and across the fields from Dedham Road towards Martin's Farm.

The view from the bridge over the A12 in Severalls Road, looking north. This is the view of the proposed solar farm which, if built, would appear as a smudge just below the far hedge line.

The telephone box in Dedham Road has been purchased by the Parish Council. It is kindly being kept spick and span, and having various plants, according to season, adorning its location.

The storm that whistled in the night left a good few trees broken or uprooted ... if not anything like 1987. Here a bough in Langham Lane, left, has fallen, whilst centre and right, more substantial damage was done in Chapel Road, including the electricity being knocked out.

In Park Lane a substantial Willow came across the road, blocking it for some hours.

The same day, near the church, there were a number of branches off, and plenty of leaves strewn around, but fewer signs of damage.

Old Mill Road, left saw many trees either side  blown over, whilst in Hundred Lane a faller blocks the path.

If you enlarge the view on the left you will see the sign on Dedham Road has been turned around. Of course, us locals don't even look!

 

The newly acquired telephone box in its setting!
