About your local Bedford branch...
Located in the central-northern part of Bedfordshire, Bedford is our County Town and has grown since medieval times around the River Great Ouse which runs through the heart of the town and the Embankment is without a doubt one of its main attractions along with Bedford Park which was opened in 1888 and has 80 acres of Victorian landscaping and remains unspoilt. Local culture includes an art gallery named the Cecil Higgins Art Gallery and Bedford and the Bunyan.
Bedford Castle, constructed during the reign of William II sometime between 1100 and 1130, only lasted until 1224, when it was destroyed in an aristocratic battle over supremacy. It was the second fortress built in Bedford, preceded by the one erected during the reign of Edward the Elder in 919. St Paul's Church was initially built before the Norman Conquest, although nothing remains of the original construction today.
Bedford’s most famous son is John Bunyan (1628 -1688), undoubtedly one of the most notable historical figures of the Bedford area, originated from Elstow and is remembered for his religious writings and sermons. During his imprisonment he wrote his most remarkable work, The Pilgrim's Progress, which is the allegory of a spiritual journey. Other famous connections with the town are Paula Radcliffe Marathon runner and both Ronne Barker comedian and Gail Emms Olympian were born here. The town has a very well supported Rugby team and Rowing clubs.
Today, Bedford is diverse town of mainly serviced based employment and around the town are many villages notably the pretty Riverside villages to the North and East which are designated an area of great landscape value. The town is home to several quality private schools and this draws many buyers to our area from far and wide.
