History of Bedford

The name comes from a Saxon chief named Beda, having settlements near the River Great Ouse about 13 centuries ago. The street patterns of the old town show a remarkable regularity, showing that town planning was done a thousand years ago, with evidence of walls and fortification in the northern part of the river. The St Mary’s church and the St Peter’s church have towers dating to the Saxon period and it is here that the Bedford mint had been housed. Bedford Park is the biggest urban park and has a Victorian design with a cricket pavilion as well as a bandstand. The Bedford Castle Mount constitutes the remains of the medieval castle and it still has some of the original masonry, though now modernized. During 1888, the Mill Meadows were linked to the Embankment Gardens with the Suspension Bridge and the Bedford Park was also opened on the same day as the bridge, having cafes, lodges and a bandstand. The Bedford borough became a part of the North Bedfordshire District in 1974, offering it the borough status.
