There is evidence that supports the coaching trade helped the growth of Harlow

Extracts from this document...


There is evidence that supports the coaching trade helped the growth of Harlow and there is other evidence showing us that it was not just the coaching trade which helped the growth of Harlow in the 18th and 19th century. The other evidence for the growth in Harlow is the River Stort and the railway. The map of Harlow in the 1777-century shows us that the coaching trade was the main income because it brought people in to the area and it brought business to the pub and inns and the market. The evidence still here today are the archways, old forge and pubs, which show us that there would have been trade from the coaches. The George pub and Inn is still here today and many other pubs, which is evidence that supports the view because it was the coaching trade that bought the pubs and inns business. ...read more.


The map in 1777 shows us the London to Cambridge road. Its shows us how and where business started out for example The Green Man and The George which are pubs. The map of Harlow in 1873 shows the road after it had been straightened and where businesses and employment moved. The reason for the road being straightened is because they thought it was in a muggy area and local businessmen thought it would be better to straighten it and more people would use it because of the river as well. The evidence of the coaching trade in Harlow which is still here today is the archways which are signs of stables, the old forge, The George, signs of inns and travel, The Green Man, Mull Hurst mews and the malt house where brewing went on. Fore street and Market Street is evidence because they were on the London to Cambridge road after it got straightened, on Market Street there would have been a market for visitors travelling past to Cambridge or London. ...read more.


The river stort got canalised between the 18th and 19th century, it got canalised so that people could trade and transport things through the river, they would trade goods such as pottery. Another sign of wealth is that most houses were built with windows, and because Harlow was a wealthy area more and more people moved to the area, which is also a reason for growth. In conclusion you can say that the coaching trade played a very large part in the growth of Harlow, but the geography also plays a major part, without its location halfway between London and Cambridge and its ability to supply the things the coaching trade required; food, drink and accommodation for travellers and coachmen, plus stables and blacksmiths for the coaching trade, the growth brought about by the coaching trade would never have happened. ?? ?? ?? ??
