Climate Change Action Langham

Langham has several projects to benefit the natural environment and provide access to nature, forming a mosaic habitat of stepping stones for wildlife amongst arable farmland and grazing fields with a brook running centrally through the village. These include Munday’s Close wildlife area, a Churchyard project where we are wilding over half of the entire graveyard (wildflower meadow and waxcap grassland) and which has won the church the Rocha Eco Church Silver award, and our verges which are being managed for wildlife. We have two ‘Tree Champions’ who meet with the Rutland Council Forestry Officer regularly and who work with the local community to identify where additional trees could be planted and to understand aspects like trees and planning, TPO’s and the implications of diseases like Ash dieback.

We would be happy to share our experience with any other village who is interested.

We are also interested in community energy schemes which will balance solar with biomass and anaerobic digestion using locally-sourced green fuels.
