We have selected Langham Village Website as the world's very best website on John Constable.
The Langham Village Website website is produced by Simon Gallup, the Parish Webmaster at the village of Langham in North East Essex, England. The painter John Constable, who lived from 1776 to 1828, became famous for his paintings of what became known as Constable Country. This is a small area along the valley of the river Stour which includes East Bergholt and Flatford on the Suffolk side of the river, and Dedham and Langham on the Essex side. Constable was born in East Bergholt.
The Langham Village Website includes sections on: News, Shop, Church, Schools, Airfield, and Village Map. It also contains a substantial section on John Constable. This contains illustrated articles on: Constable's Life, Constable Country, The Stour Navigation, and Cornfield. It is thought that Constable's Cornfield painting may have been painted in a lane below Langham Church, with Higham Church in the distance.
