Langham is a small village south of Morston and Blakeney and formerly home of Langham Glass. The Norfolk Coast Cycleway route 30 passes through on its way from Binham to Wiveton.
On the former airfield there is a fascinating dome structure. Built in 1942, Langham Dome is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and is now owned by the North Norfolk Historic Buildings Trust. Situated on the edge of Langham's RAF base, one of the wartime uses of the Dome was as a trainer for anti-aircraft gunners in ground to air defence. Rendered externally with concrete, which has a metal rod and mesh sub-structure, the interior of the Dome was lined with white fibreboard and had moving images of targets projected on to it. Trainees, using replica weaponry equipped with a light beam, would aim at the targets to improve their accuracy and level of success. It is the intention of the Trust, together with the Friends of Langham Dome, to repair and restore this building and incorporate an interpretation of its training facilities.
