Langham Parish Room
- is at the centre of the village of Langham, close to the coastal village of Blakeney and the Georgian market town of Holt in North Norfolk, England. It has been at the heart of village life for over 150 years and is one of the oldest parish rooms in Norfolk. The Parish Room is a much valued resource for the village and is used for a host of community activities including keep-fit and Pilates classes, art classes and the Friends of Langham coffee mornings. It is the home for the Langham Bowls Club and the meeting place for the Parish Council. It is the local polling station, and an exhibition and craft-fair centre. It is the catering centre for the Langham Street Fayre and provides toilet facilities for the Church. It is used by Langham Village School for some activities and also for various charity fund-raising events.
However time has taken its toll on the fabric of the building and its facilities and over the past three years it has been undergoing renovation in successive phases so that it can continue to meet the needs of the community in the current age. The kitchen has been up-graded, the main all and kitchen/lobby area redecorated. Over the summer of last year, the main hall floor was completely renewed on an insulated, reinforced concrete sub base and finished in solid oak planking.
This work has been possible thanks to a monumental fund-raising effort by the village and grants from The Norfolk Rural Community Council, the Norfolk Foundation and the Geoffrey Watling Trust. We are most grateful for their assistance.
We now look forward to completing Phase 2 of our Refurbishment Project during the summer of this year.
