Forget the unaffordable likes of Park Avenue North – there are plenty of places in Harpenden with modest property prices, and we've found the least expensive of the lot. 

Using Land Registry data for the five years to June 2021 – excluding retirement properties and addresses with fewer than three transactions – we can reveal the most inexpensive parts of Harpenden to call home. 

Beeching Close tops the list, with an average price of £220,875. Located off Westfield Road on the northern edge of Harpenden, this collection of low-rise one and two-bed flats is well placed for the Red Cow pub, among other amenities.
