HARLOW Town Station opened on July 13th 1960. It was built to serve the then new town of Harlow and designed by the British Rail Eastern Region Architect’s Department.
The design team included Paul Hamilton, John Bicknell, Ian Fraser, John Ward and Arthur Quarmby.
A new rail station was not an immediate concern for the Development Corporation as Harlow was not a commuter town, but the lack of rail travel in the town’s early days was frustrating for early residents as they found it difficult to visit relatives in London.
