Harlow in Essex is a new town, but Old Harlow is its ancient part. Old Harlow was granted a market charter in 1218, and this was the beginning of its growth, although it pre-dates the Domesday Book which was compiled in 1086. The Green Man pub in Old Harlow bears testament to the fact that Harlow, as it was known in those days (before the New Town was built) was a stopping point for coaches going to London, Cambridge, Norwich and other places. It still retains a village atmosphere, and there is evidence that there was an Iron Age fort on nearby Stanegrove Hill. There is also evidence that a temple was constructed at some time around 70 AD.

For example, if you have a minor whiplash injury and are expected to recover fully within six weeks to a year, you could get between £1,705 and £3,520. If you had a more serious injury, and were not expected to recover fully for between one year and two, you could get between £3,520 and £6,380. If there were more serious complications, you would expect to receive more in terms of personal injury compensation.
