What image does Bedford conjure up?
It is easy to forget the history of a town when you are busy living in it. I wonder what we would find out if we went on a guided tour of Bedford? What secrets have we forgotten, or never learned?
I asked the ‘We are Bedford’ facebook page ‘what Bedford is famous for?’ and these are some of the answers: The Bedford Blues, The Bedfordshire Clanger, beer, Bunyan, boating, The Cardington hangars (where batman was filmed), Rolls Royce, lace making, brussel sprouts, rowing, being the most cosmopolitan town in Britain, the beautiful new Gurdwara, bricks, the name of some of the sexiest vintage camper vans and lorries in the world, oh, and for ‘going up the wooden hill to Bedfordshire’!
This is our history, this is our town. What else could we add?
