Harlow Town station opened in 1842 as Burnt Mill, serving the small village of the same name. However, in 1960 the station was rebuilt and positioned to serve the recently constructed new town of Harlow. At the time it was British Rail's flagship building, with its new design described as 'crisp and entirely ungimmicky' - it has since been awarded with Grade II listed status. Trains from Harlow Town serve London Liverpool Street, Stratford, Stansted Airport and Cambridge. Built to help the housing effort after WW2, Harlow was - and still is - a well-planned new town with plenty of character. The town boasts one of the UK's most extensive cycle track networks, and also lays claim to having the first pedestrian precinct and residential tower block ever built in Britain. Today, Harlow is an arts and culture hotspot, with the Playhouse Theatre, the Museum of Harlow and the collection of public sculptures in Gibberd Garden all well worth a visit.
