Bedford is located is a part of the ceremonial county of Bedfordshire. The area is classed as a county town and is situated in the East of England region. Bedford acts as the administrative quarters for the Borough of Bedford, which shares the same name as the county town. There are an estimated 80, 000 people living in the county town of Bedford itself and there are around 153, 000 residents in the borough as a whole.
The name Bedford is believed to have come from the name of the Saxon chief – Beda, as well as a ford which crossed the River Great Ouse. The chief’s name ‘Beda’ and the ‘ford’ were said to have been merged and by this the name ‘Bedford’ was created. Bedford was originally a market town from as early as the Middle Ages. In the year 919, Edward the Elder built the town’s first fortress on the south side of the River Ouse. The fortress was later destroyed by the Dane, before Paine de Beauchamp went on to build a stronger, new castle. Paine de Beauchamp’s castle became known as the new Bedford Castle however, now only a few remains of this castle can be seen in the area. From the middle of the 16th century and onwards, Bedford was well noted for its silk industry and its skilled and talented lace-makers. The Flemings were the first well known lace-making family in Bedford and then later on the Huguenots, who emigrated from Europe, were also well known lace-makers. The lace industry remained a major part of Bedford’s industry right up until the early 20th century.
Major developments and improvements took place in Bedford during the 19th century, as this century saw the introduction to gas lighting in 1832. But this wasn’t the only form of modernisation to happen in the county town, because the railway system also arrived in Bedford a little later on in the year 1846. It was here in Bedford where the first drains and sewers were dug out and put in place in 1864.
Bedford county town is the largest of the areas within the Borough of Bedford. The town itself is quite large, as it itself is divided in to ten areas. Ampthill, Sandy, Flitwick and Biggleswade are some of the small towns which are located close by to the town of Bedford. As a result of the London Brick Company’s labour recruitment in the 1950’s in the south Italian areas of: Puglia, Sicily, Abruzzo, Molise, Campania and Calabria, there is a large number of Italian immigrants in the area. A recent research has shown that almost 30% of Bedford’s total population are of Italian or at least partial Italian decent. This explains why there is an area of Bedford which is called ‘Little Italy’, which is home to a variety of Italian bars, restaurants, social clubs, delicatessens, grocery shops and a large Italian church. As well as having a large number of Italian immigrants in the area, there are also a high number of Asian, Eastern European, Greek, Cyprus, Middle East and African residents in Bedford.
Some of the more well known places to visit and famous landmarks of Bedford are the River Great Ouse, the Bedford Castle Mound, Bedford Park and the Bedford War Memorial. The Bedford Castle Mound is the remains of what was the former Bedford Castle and is situated close by to the town centre. The River Great Ouse is a river which flows through the town centre and has gardens which run along the side of the river. These gardens are known as The Embankment and have its own war memorial on its grounds. The war memorial was built to remember the soldiers from the First World War and was designed by the well known sculptor – Charles Sargeant in 1921.
