THINGS WE LOVE ABOUT HANGLETON & THE SURROUNDING NEIGHBOURHOOD We love living and working in Hangleton, it offers so much for everyone! Increasingly popular with families and retired couples who are looking to live a little further away from the town centre whilst still being minutes away by car or bus. Generally, if you are looking for a more spacious property with a generous garden, non-restricted street parking or a garage you will get more for your money than in the centre of town. There are also so many green open spaces to enjoy, being close to the sea but surrounded by countryside with great links to the A23 and A27 make it a very convenient location too. The family friendly vibe and strong community links make it a great place to live, read on to find out more about what Hangleton has to offer!
