Community Archives

Welcome to our Community Archives section which is intended to give a brief overview of the history of each Bedfordshire settlement.

We hope, eventually, to have a page for each town, village or hamlet in the county and we will be regularly adding pages. Although aimed at residents and budding local historians, we hope that the pages will also be of interest to all Lower Schools including as they do, typically, parts of the 25 inches to the mile Ordnance Survey maps between the 1880s and 1920s, a section from the parish inclosure map or tithe apportionment map, and photographs. We will also include historical details of public houses and beerhouses, places of worship, schools and buildings and people of interest unique to the particular place.

Please be aware that the pages are not designed to be the last word on any particular subject. They are a taster, designed to give basic information and to whet the appetite of the reader to come and visit us and find out more!
