Harold Park

Harold Park lies to the east of Greater London, straddling the tracks of the Elizabeth Line.

In 1868 a wealthy Brentwood solicitor built a mansion to the south of the River Ingrebourne and railway line, named Harold Court. The owner went bankrupt and the house became in turn a children’s home, a lunatic asylum and then a sanatorium. In 1959 it became a teacher training college and is now private flats.

Horse Block Farm lay to the north-east of Harold Court Road. After the First World War, Essex builders Iles and Company laid out a bungalow estate and called it ’Sunnytown’.

Harold Court primary school opened in 1929.

A riverside industrial estate that was created after the Second World War on the site of a brickworks.
