in Boxted and Langham


Welcome to this week’s newsletter – giving you a reminder of some of the regular events taking place in Boxted and Langham. Happy new year everybody!


2019 – A Wet Autumn

A ditch in Boxted maintained by the landowner full of running water after the recent heavy rainfall. This water flows into the lake on the Rivers Hall Estate and then on to Sky Hall Hill where it joins up with various other watercourses to the east.

All these water courses can be tracked on the Essex County Council PROW interactive map.
