Essex cast iron guideposts in the


Harlow, the smallest local authority in area within Essex.  A greater part of the authority's area is taken by Harlow New Town, which may be expanded if plans to develop the M11 corridor towards Stansted take place.  Just one cast iron post found by Colleen Morrison is known to survive in the district.
