Bedfordshire

Bedfordshire

Not quite in the heart of England, not quite in the Midlands, not quite in the Home Counties and not quite in Anglia.

Bedfordshire is a small, but perfectly formed, county (only 477 square miles) often lumped in with one area or another by different people who are regionalising the country for their own means. In truth it shares some of the character of all of the different area which it borders. It has flatlands like the Anglia region. It has rolling hills like the heart of England. It has large swathes of commuter land with easy access to London, like much of the Home Counties. And it has heavily industrialised areas like the Midlands.

The geography of Bedfordshire is quite varied, with flat arable land to the north and to the east and with steep hills to the south which mark the beginning of the Chiltern Hills and its area of outstanding natural beauty. Amongst these hills is Bedfordshire’s highest point, Dunstable Downs, with a height of 797 feet from sea level. The river Great Ouse passes through the county as well as the county town of Bedford, it meanders for more than 45 miles through the county, while as the crow flies it is only about 17 miles from where it enters the county at Turvey to where it leaves near Eaton Socon.  More
