Latest Exhibition at Parndon Mill

Colourful, atmospheric paintings by Helen Ryan in acrylic paint and mixed media use shape, form and gestural marks to convey the energetic balance between freedom and control. With these pieces she recreates her most loved places as they appear now and via the lens of memory.

Ceramics by Nigel Earle complement the paintings, using form, texture and colour also drawn from a pool of memory, experience and imagination. His pieces are influenced by landscape, geology, architecture and industrial archaeology. They rely on the natural character of different clays, with textures suggesting a certain ageing and weathering, and glazes and colours applied quite sparingly.

10th January - 17th February 2019,  Tuesday - Friday 10 am - 5 pm, Sunday 2 - 4 pm or by appointment

Harlow Science Park

Please see below a link to a short video produced highlighting the progress being made at the Harlow Science Park development on London Road.

Since work began there in October 2018, construction of the first buildings at the 27-acre site is now well under way; once complete the park will comprise 25 buildings housing businesses in the high-tech, life science, information and communication technology and advanced engineering industries.

This first phase of construction focusses on the creation of the Anglia Ruskin Business Innovation Centre and an office complex known as Nexus, which will be owned and run by Harlow Council.

The Council will be using Nexus to help businesses in the technology sector to grow.

In addition to the businesses that will make their home at the Science Park, there will also be other facilities including cafés, restaurants, a gym and a hotel, that can be used by people living in the area, as well as by those working there.

The site will create around 2,500 jobs for Harlow.

The first phase of construction is expected to be completed in August 2019.
