Tour BedfordshireBedfordshire, Huntingdon and Peterborough (Pevsner Buildings of England S.) The varied architecture of this east Midland area ranges from the Norman glory of Peterborough cathedral and notable Early English churches to many fine Elizabethan and Jacobean mansions. The finest of these is Houghton House but the most spectacular is Burghley, of palatial proportions in a perfect landscape setting by Capability Brown. Southill and Woburn Abbey display the range and excellence of Georgian houses and landscaped gardens while Wrest Park and Luton Hoo look back to eighteenth-century French architecture from opposite ends of the nineteenth-century. More recently, Whipsnade Zoo exemplifies fine work of the 1930s by Berthold Lubetkin.

Bedfordshire Walks100 Walks in Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire (100 Walks S.) Each book in this series features 100 circular walks ranging from 2-12 miles. The walks have a map, points of interest, and places to eat and drink en route, plus suggestions for easy car parking. This volume covers the area from Peterborough to Cambridge and from Bedford to Luton.

Bedford Motoring HeritageBedford's Motoring Heritage This is a history of a previously undocumented part of Bedford's history that has touched the lives of many. The rich heritage of pictures and other information about private motoring in Bedford since the turn of the 20th century is revealed here for the first time. Photographs and adverts illuminate local car transport from the leisurely Golden Age of pre-World War II motoring to the modern era of near-universal car ownership. The authors also look at early changes in the street scene and in street furniture brought about by the motor car, road signs, garage buildings and signs, traffic lights, better road surfaces, and so on. Driving licenses and tests, as well as the growth of driving schools, also figure. The book brings the story up to more recent times, and the vast expansion of car ownership. Drastic changes to Bedford as the planners tried, in vain, to give drivers unimpeded access to the town centre are also documented, as well as the move of garages away from the centre to the outskirts, and the decline of traditional petrol station forecourts. With its varied content and many illustrations, this is valuable reading for anyone interested in Bedford's history.
