A Church In Langham

Jane’s family roots are in the Langham area near Colchester. In our visit to Langham we found the church where her grandfather was baptized and attended Sunday school. It was a moving moment for her. Beautiful place in extremely picturesque countryside. I took these two photos of the church and the churchyard.

About Don

I love life. Sometimes it makes sense, other times not. Discerning its underlying patterns and beauty always provides great reward and meaning and is a passion I ineptly follow. I feel deeply attached to nature and love the sea with its distinct moods and colour and find walking along its beaches wonderfully inspiring. Writing, sketching and photography is a sheer joy for me and the blog is one of the places I am able to express these pursuits.

  4. The church is wonderful, Don, but the cemetery is mesmerizing. I am drawn to quiet old grave yards, the crooked headstones, the uneven rows, the beautiful final resting places of people who had once walked among the tombstones paying tribute to those who had gone before.
    Beautiful pictures.

      I was amazed at the age of some of those those headstones, Marylin. Some from the seventeenth century. The church itself has been there from the fourteenth century. Obviously the architecture changed just a little over the years.

  6. There’s something very special about visiting places where your ancestors have been. There’s also something about Churchyards and being amongst them that really appeals to me too. Lovely post. Lovely photos.:)
