Great Hangleton is a town located in England, 6 miles away from Little Hangleton, and as its name would suggest, it is somewhat larger than the latter. Also, it is about 200 miles away from Privet Drive. It contains a police station, whereas Little Hangleton does not. In 1943, Frank Bryce was taken to this town for questioning by the police about the murders of Thomas, Mary and Tom Riddle Snr[1]. The police let him go though, because they did not have enough evidence to arrest him.

In 1926, when Bob Ogden went to the Gaunt shack to serve a warrant to Morfin Gaunt, he passed a road sign that said "Great Hangleton, 5 miles" and "Little Hangleton, 1 mile".
