  • Thanks, yes I have had a look on there, and it doesn't look too bad. Its just I know some parts of Basildon can be quite rough and others really nice. I am hoping Langdon Hills will be quite nice from some of the house prices I have seen in the area.

  • The prices will be a good indication but driving around at different times of day will also give a good indication.

  • Langdon Hills is one of the nicer areas of Basildon, I say this as a resident.

  • Thanks so much for your response. I am so glad to know its the nicer part as we are going ahead with the purchase, we will be moving to a property just near the tesco on the quite new estate. Another quick question was Laindon train station, I believe this is the closest station, but do you need to walk to it via the main road as this is showing to take about 30 mins, just wondering if anyone knows of any shortcuts through the houses at all.

  • Yes, it's about 25-30 mins, depending on how fast you walk, to Laindon station, several routes depending on where you are. There is also a fairly regular bus that goes from near Tescos to the station.

  • Langdon Hills isn't rough. The 'Tesco' bit is desirable and modern. The older part nearer Laindon itself has some nice older places and is accessible to Fenchurch St in about half an hour. There are some very nice parts of the area nearby with big executive type properties and the country park is nearby. Its one of the best parts of the Basildon district but prices are according.

  • Excellent for cycling Route 13 goes thru it 8 mins from M25 Surrounded by nature reserve Depleted prices due to lack of secondary schools within walking distance which makes property prices god vfm Beautiful countryside Over 95% of children aged 11 plus are bused out- good access to secondary schools and public transport A nice community built up over 20 years Excellent location for families, dogs, older people, runners, cyclists, insurance prices relatively less compared to other areas of Basildon, quiet location, Dust men aren't too bad - regular rubbish clearance St Johns Church is centre of many community activities Rare traffic jams Overall very tidy gardens and many dog poo bins around area Very little rubbish on ground- so area is respected You could live in much worse areas A hidden gem of Essex Many parks for children to pay safely in Lived here for 22 years through many life changes Still here- could h ave moved but chose not to
