The Water Gardens
The local area
Characterful Harlow has a long history but was expanded after the Second World War as part of the process of establishing new towns to ease the burden on overcrowded London. It has undergone plenty of redevelopment since that time, with new neighbourhoods such as the Church Langley estate and Newhall, and the civic centre and improved Water Gardens in the south of the town centre. Harlow’s proximity to London remains one of the town’s major pulls, and the transport links available are of a high standard.
There are plenty of direct rail services to the capital’s Liverpool Street station, which take a shade over half an hour. The M11 motorway passes to the east of Harlow, heading south to London and north to Cambridge. Harlow also boasts an excellent location close to Stansted Airport, which is less than 15 miles away and can be reached in around 20 minutes by road or rail.
There is a good selection of schools in the area for parents with younger families to consider, with primary options including the Henry Moore Primary School on Kiln Lane, William Martin CofE, and St Alban’s Catholic Primary on First Avenue. Choices at secondary level include Passmores Academy, St Mark’s West Essex Catholic School and Burnt Mill Academy. Old Harlow also plays host to an international campus of Memorial University of Newfoundland.
