Housing

Emerson Park originates from the development of suburban housing in the late 19th century after the coming of the railway. The residential estates that make up the area are named Ardleigh Green, Emerson Park and Nelmes. It is located to the north of Hornchurch town centre and is one of the more prestigious neighbourhoods in the London Borough of Havering. In the middle of the area is Parkstone Avenue which runs west-east and is about a mile long.

There is some variety in the types of property, however the vast majority are substantially large detached homes on plots of land of at least 0.5 acres (2,000 m2). The roads in the area are wide and lined with mature trees. The architecture is not entirely Victorian or Edwardian as some plots have been reused over time and new homes constructed in contemporary styles. As of 2008, the average price of homes is over £750,000 on 14 streets in the area and above £1 million on five further streets.[2]

Education

Transport and locale

A branch railway runs from Romford to Upminster along the south of the district with Emerson Park railway station serving the area as well as several London Bus routes. The Campion and Emerson Park secondary schools border the estate. Emerson Park is part of the Hornchurch post town and forms part of the Upminster constituency.
