Stanford-le-Hope is a town and Church of England parish situated in the county of Essex, England. The town is within the unitary authority of Thurrock and located 23.8 miles (38.4 km) east of Charing Cross in London. Its principal claim to fame is that Joseph Conrad lived and wrote there. Unlike some other areas of Thurrock, Stanford-le-Hope is surrounded by countryside and farmland. The town is served by Stanford-le-Hope railway station.Often known locally simply as Stanford, the town is home to many commuters working in London, thanks to its proximity to the capital and its c2c-operated London, Tilbury and Southend Railway rail connections. Until recently the town benefited from two refineries located on the nearby Thames, Shell Haven and Coryton. Both have now closed, the Shell site ceased operating in 1999 and has now been redeveloped by Dubai Ports as a deepwater container port with attendant logistics and commercial development. Coryton refinery ceased to operate in 2013, demolition of the process units continues and the site is now under redevelopment as a Fuels Storage and Distribution Terminal in a joint venture between Greenergy and Shell as well as an enterprise zone. Both these changes point to a bright future for the town. Many residents also travel along the nearby A13 to work in the Lakeside Shopping Centre, as well as the industrial and commercial businesses along the north bank of the Thames running west towards the Port of London.
