Harlow Accident Claim


Harlow is a new town and local government district found within the ceremonial county of Essex, in the south of England. The town is located toward the west of the county, on the border with Hertfordshire and along the course of the Stort Valley.

The town is situated approximately 30 miles away from central London and has excellent transport links to the capital by way of the proximity of the M11 motorway and the town’s location on the main railway line between London Liverpool Street and Cambridge. It is this combination of geographical factors which has turned Harlow into a popular and thriving commuter town for London workers in recent years.

A Brief History Of Harlow

There has been a good deal of discussion as to the etymology of the name of Harlow, with a number of possible explanations. One such is that the name derives from the Anglo-Saxon words here and hlaw, meaning ‘army hill’, which may have referred to Mulberry Hill; a noted historic meeting place in the area. Another possible explanation, however, is that the name derives from the words here and hearg, meaning ‘temple hill’, probably relating to an Iron Age burial mound.

Human habitation in the Harlow area stretches back many hundreds of years but it was only after World War Two that the settlement really began to grow in earnest. This was due to its designation as a new town as part of a wider program to relieve overcrowding in London. What followed was an extended period of development and expansion which turned Harlow into the town which we know today.

Modern Day Harlow

Since its establishment as a new town, Harlow has undergone a steady and near continuous spell of growth and expansion to the point that it is now home to approximately 82,000 permanent residents.

This reveals that the town is undoubtedly now a significant centre of population which is in many ways advantageous to the settlement but does also bring some new issues and challenges. These include the fact that it will now see more accidents and injuries, and as a result that Harlow accident claim proceedings will be more common.
