The central hub of Bedfordshire, Bedford has an interesting and broad history. Dates can be traced way back until early medieval period with the Saxons. It has always served as a market town for the surrounding farmland. In 886 it became a boundary town separating Wessex and Danelaw. This position made Bedford into an important place as a fording area for the River Great Ouse. The construction of Bedford castle was prompted by this and although the original castle is no longer standing, the site can still be visited in Bedford. In the 1560s Bedford became a main centre for the lace industry. The immigrant Flemings and later the French Huguenots that left religious oppression in Europe settled and plied their trade as lace-makers. The trade continued to be important right up until the early 20th century.
Bedford boasts a recreated Victorian home that is a museum and art gallery, displaying local collections of watercolours, prints, drawings, ceramics, glass and lace. Bedford Corn Exchange and the University of Bedfordshire Theatre form the hub of Bedford’s theatrical scene and entertainment. There are a number of annual festivals which are fantastically varied and vibrant.
The list of prominent Bedfordians is impressive. Containing comedians such as Ronnie Barker, Olympians like gold medallist Tim Foster, footballers such as Andy Johnson, Bishop Trevor Huddleston, broadcasters like Howard Bentham, diplomat Alfred Mitchell-Innes, Lord Mayor of London Sir William Harpur and Antarctic explorer Apsley Cherry-Garrard. The St Paul’s Church in Bedford housed the BBC’s radio show from 1941 until the end of the Second World War. Bedford has been a spring of great talent and continues to be.
