Did you know...?


Did you know that a street in Houghton Regis was named after an

Olympic athlete? or that a Second World War Cooking Depot was once located

in Easthill Road? How about the historic artefacts that were found at Easthill

Farm during the 1950s or the Victorian Business Woman who owned premises

at Bedford Road?


These are just a few of the stories which have made Houghton Regis the

town that it is today, and Up Above The Streets and Houses documents

the history of the area through its people and buildings, which have given

their names to many of the streets.

How can I order a copy of 'Up Above The Streets and Houses'?
