From a watercolour by Bernard West.
Stevington 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, two pubs serving food and real ale, a Post Office, 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 cricket teams and 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.
In the midst of all this activity, a dedicated group of enthusiasts have spent many hours (some say too large a part of their lives) researching the history of the Village and have completed "Stevington: The Village History". Please look at the the following pages to learn about the work of Stevington Historical Trust and for details of the book.
