The fair comes to town - on Cymbeline Meadows and several balmy September evenings. The fireworks were especially impressive!

The village sign on the triangle of green between Wick Road and Park Lane.


The signage next to the village sign on the Park Lane/Wick Road green is useful and flexible.

The dog bin appears to have been used for other purposes, but even if not the whole idea is somewhat graceless on this pleasant green area.


The footpath sign off Park Lane, across to the A12, and not particularly noticeable.


 'Alefounders' in Park Lane is a delight in shade.

Three views near the junction with Birchfield Road. This is a very busy junction (by Langham standards) and the narrowing of the road in Wick Road, seen on the right, is one of two cases of  a designed-in hazards - the other being the road narrowing outside Spencer's Piece.

Wick Road again, with a variety of street furniture and roadside environments.






Attractive gardens and a pavement separated from the road by greensward.


The ditch in School Road is crossed by railway sleepers; its usually dry nature has led to its colonisation by a variety of flowering plants.

More views of the pond area and a general view of the wood to the north. As the trees are so young the whole feel of the field is still very open and light.

Towards the new dualled road, with Mersey Homes on the left.


At Runkins Corner  horses are kept for recreation and a show-jumping circuit has been set up. A map plot of 'horseyculture' in the area might be instructive.


The new roundabout nears completion after an interminable gestation period.
