Introduction to The Stevington Historical Trust (Registered Charity No. 1086669)

Watercolour by Bernard West

The village is a parish in the county of Bedfordshire, England with a population of about 670. It lies 6 miles north west of the Borough of Bedford in the picturesque valley of the river Great Ouse.

We have a Church, a Baptist Chapel, a pub serving real ale, a Community Shop staffed by a willing band of volunteers plus other local amenities including a pre-school nursery.

Social activities abound with a thriving Social Centre, football and numerous other sports clubs plus the Women's Institute to name but a few. Stevington is also the home of Bedford Sailing Club - yes, it is possible to sail on the River Ouse. The Stevington Magazine is published quarterly providing our budding authors with an opportunity to exercise their talents.

What do we do?
The Stevington History Group was formed in September 1999 to research the history of the Village. The object of the Trust is to advance the education of the public in the history of Stevington (Bedfordshire). A dedicated group of enthusiasts, they have spent many hours (some say too large a part of their lives) researching the history of the Village and have to date completed two highly acclaimed publications: "Stevington: The Village History", and "Stevington In Pictures". Please look at the the following pages to learn about the work of Stevington Historical Trust and for details of the current publications and future projects.

Trustees: Alan Edwards OBE, Peter Hart, Peter Stileman, Roger Day, James Petre.
