A bank of spring flowers on the Dedham Road, left, and the aftermath of weeks of flooding in Cage Lane ... a squelchy and small mess!

Again in Cage Lane is the massive pot-hole that still needs filling in. Now largely dry, the marks of scraped transmission casings can be seen by its side!

The green triangle at the junction of Old Mill Road and Dedham Road, left, with piled logs from the footpath below Church Farm, right. Horse Chestnut flowers in the centre.

St Mary's Langham interior, and a chart inside the church displaying attendances over the past years. On the right is Church Farm, looking out over the Dedham Vale.

The steep rise up from Old Mill Lane ... by this time walking, not cycling! Newly-felled softwood timber has made a clearing at Hill Farm, as seen from the footpath from Old Mill Road.

A constant companion in the garden through the summer was this blackbird ... together with a robin.

The war zone that is Water Lane! Deep potholes have been excavated by tractors, most likely, as lesser vehicles would have grounded. Through our recent rains the lane has been a veritable river, removing sub-base from the potholes and gouging more holes. Workers are mending nearby Docuras Road and New Road (to Low Lift Cottages) in the centre.

29 July 2014

 

   

As I cycled up to the church for the licensing service, I noticed the telephone kiosk, bought by the Parish Council, and kept clean and enhanced by plants by the good people opposite, had its undercoat of pink on display. I could not but think this was some kind of auspicious omen!

A huge congregation turned out for the licensing of the Rev Dr Mandy Elmes on 29th July 2014. As the coach from West Bergholt could not turn into the drive, its passengers walked down the tree-lined avenue on a perfect summer's evening ... and added to the spectacle of the occasion.

The new Rector, her Bishop, and her parishioners gather for the licensing. Jerry, left, is largely unmoved, but did enjoy the attention!

The Rev. Dr. Mandy Elmes, seen here with the Bishop of Chelmsford, who licensed her ... and the Archdeacon of Colchester installed her ... as the Priest-in-charge of Langham-with-Boxted, Great Horkesley and West Bergholt.

Road mending ....7 August 2014

 

   

 

The road being patched by our resident mending gang in Moor Road, demonstrating the quality of a good patch.  (I know they read this!)

A really thorough job being done to remedy the long-standing road and drainage problems in Greyhound Hill.

More fun and games in Moor Road ... and others ... as the electricity people replace some of the telegraph poles. The damage to the pole, centre, by its forceful removal, shows how well it was embedded!
