Great Bedfordshire resource

I came across a wonderful resource for some Bedfordshire parishes today. The Bedfordshire Council now has a Community Archives section on their website - content varies depending on the parish but includes maps, historical churches, details of interesting buildings, and perhaps industry information and census extracts. If you have ancestors that spent time just across the county border from Wing you may well find something of interest here. I certainly found some former Wing residents when clicking on random house profiles!

See here for the list of parishes. I'll be linking to the ones close to Wing on my Neighbours page in December.

And now I'm off to read the Leighton Buzzard non-conformist churches pages more closely, as some of our Wing folk did make the trek there each Sunday!
