Living in Collier Row area information and guide

Collier Row area overview

Collier Row in north east London is a suburban development north of Romford. The area is based on a large housing estate built during the inter-war housing expansion which created much of outer London. It is centred around shops around a central crossroads. Its name originates from its history as a centre for charcoal burners and remains of a Roman settlement have been uncovered in the area. The area was formerly part of the county of Essex until the formation of Greater London in 1965. Rents here are some of the lowest in London largely because of the poor transport accessibility - it is not connected to either the underground or overground train networks.
