A springtime walking route through Langford and Graven Hill

The new 2024 walking route we posted to our facebook page has proved quite popular so here it is for our website followers and friends who’re up for somewhere else to stroll nearby.

You can walk from any point on the map/route though the marked start (A) and finish point for this one is the postbox at the Peregrine Way and Shearwater Drive junction. Start with a walk down to Jubilee Lake then over to Graven Hill via the Rodney House roundabout and back through the tunnel beneath the A41 and over the London Road to return to Langford again.

The full distance of the route is around 3.5 miles and so it will take between an hour or two to complete, longer if you choose to stop at one of the two coffee shops, the wine bar or the pub – all of which you’ll be passing. Why not let us know how you get on with a comment here?

Langford 5G Mast Site Ruled Unsuitable

The proposed 5G mast would look the same as this one in west Bicester.

The 5G telecom tower proposed for Peregrine Way has failed to win approval of Cherwell District Council and is being refused planning permission. Council officers say the mast would bring ‘demonstrable harm to visual amenity’ and cause detriment to living conditions for nearby residents.

We don’t yet know whether the telecoms firm that wishes to build the mast to improve coverage here will make any alternative proposal or whether it might appeal the decision to refuse it at that spot.

The LVCA was among the organisations and people who objected to the 16m tall mast being placed at the chosen spot and suggested consideration was given to putting it somewhere else on Langford Village.
