Amazingly, considering how much there is squeezed in, Bedfordshire is England's smallest county. Perhaps what makes it look so deceptively large are the never ending undulating green fields, cosmopolitan towns and luscious rivers.
With such beautiful and valuable farmland it is little wonder that the area has been attracting new settlers for thousands of years, since it was the homeland of the ancient British Cantvellauni Tribe. From then on it was continually occupied by either the Romans or the Anglo Saxons or Danes, and was for a while known as the Kingdom of Mercia. The region's most famous son John Bunyan began the Pilgrim's Progress in Bedford Prison and a stone marks the prison's original site. In addition there is a museum and a statue in front of the church of St Peter, as well as a meeting-house named after him. For history buffs the county also has Woburn Abbey, ancestral seat of the Dukes of Bedford, built on a medieval abbey and sitting in parklands of over 3000 acres; now of course, a famous safari park. In addition there is the house at Luton Hoo built by Robert Adam (and with gardens landscaped by Capability Brown), the 19th century 5 arch bridge over the River Ouse and hundreds of old churches scattered throughout the region.
But Bedford is really all about the landscape and the rolling Chiltern Hills and Dunstable Downs - from the undulating pastures and farms set in the River Great Ouse Valley and the vast waterway and tributaries of the river itself to forests of alder and willow and endless meadows, thatched cottages, market gardens and ancient villages such as Cardington, Bushmead and Roxton.
Bedford itself has one of the most impressive riverside settings in all of Britain looking out over the River Great Ouse from Castle Mound. Well worth a visit it is a cosmopolitan and exciting town with arts and culture festivals all year round and a number of fine museums.

Death of the High Street?
The BBC reports that despite councils' attempts to kurb them, the UK's high streets have seen a huge growth in fast food outlets. Could this mark the death knell for the Great British high street, and what can we do about it to halt its decline?
Discrimination by Postcode
You really couldn't make it up, could you? Some of the country's most vulnerable people are missing out on their weekly £25 Cold Weather Payment, just because the system that's in operation is discriminating against them because payments are based on postcode, rather than geographic location.
The Redesign is Underway
Well, the current website was absolutely in dire need of a good redesign - from the ground up. So I set out to pull it all apart and get it up and running again to become the most comprehensive guide to every postcode in the UK. And it's been a long, tough job from start to finish - and quite possibly the biggest project I've ever undertaken.
The Impossible Challenge of Affordability
No wonder the younger generation are getting more and more frustrated with money - new research has revealed that even with a 10% deposit, 25-34 year olds are struggling to afford even the CHEAPEST houses on the market. Is there a solution to the 'impossible challenge'?
