BEDFORD
ARCHITECTURAL
ARCHAEOLOGICAL
& LOCAL HISTORY SOCIETY

Our Society’s foundation can be traced back to November 1888 when the Bedford Amateur Natural History Society came into being. Over the years there have been several name changes, the latest being in 2008 after the merger with the Bedford Society (founded 1966). The Society is a Registered Charity. We are a group of local people, from a wide variety of backgrounds, who share a common interest in the history and archaeology of Bedford and its neighbourhood. We are also actively involved in trying to ensure that Bedford's buildings of special architectural and historic interest are protected and to increase public awareness of their importance. We also seek to preserve the best of the present urban landscape and to oppose developments which are incongruous or otherwise unsuitable.
