Summary. A programme of building recording was carried out by the Colchester Archaeological Trust (CAT) on several structures at Harlow Town Park, Essex in June 2014. The work was commissioned by Mr Andrew Allocca, Regeneration Project Delivery Manager for Harlow District Council. The structures recorded included 20th-century alterations to the 19th-century Spurrier’s House, a petting zoo, bandstand, nursery and the Greyhound public toilets, all dating to the 20th century. These structures form part of Harlow Town Park, one of twelve parks with significant post-World War II elements cited on the English Heritage Register of Parks.
