NOTES: Harlow New Town, together with the London orbital developments of Basildon, Stevenage, Hemel Hempstead and Bracknell, was built after World War II to ease overcrowding in London. The masterplan for the town was drawn up by Frederick Gibberd in 1947. It is notable for being the location of the first pedestrian precinct and first residential tower block in Britain.
