Long Description:

A floor paver set near the entrance in St Mary's church, Langham, to mark the third millennium of the christian era. The inscription reads:

TO
MARK THE
BEGINNING OF
THE YEAR OF OUR
LORD JESUS CHRIST
MMI
AND THE THIRD
MILLENNIUM
OF THE
CHRISTIAN ERA

"In contemporary history, the third millennium is a period of time that started on January 1, 2001, and will end on December 31, 3000 of the Gregorian calendar. It is distinct from the millennium known as the 2000s which began on January 1, 2000 and will end on December 31, 2999."

"The medieval St Mary’s Church is approached via a private road along an avenue of lime trees through the Langham Hall Estate in the northern part of Langham. It has a remarkably beautiful setting in the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) overlooking the Vale itself. It is featured in a number of John Constable’s best-known paintings, most notably the several versions of “The Glebe Farm and Langham Church”.

The Grade I listed building, consisting of a chancel, nave and south aisle, is largely of pebble-rubble and pudding-stone construction of various dates from the 12th to 19th centuries.  It was re-ordered in the 1860s and 1890s and now seats about 130 people. In the 1980s the exterior of the church was extensively restored and in 1994 a major renewal programme was initiated, of which the most obvious manifestations so far are the elegant gallery and fine organ at the west end and the baptistry in the south aisle."
