Stagsden, Bedford

Stagsden is a small but historic village and civil parish located in northwest Bedfordshire, near the Buckinghamshire border. Situated on the main route between nearby Bedford and Milton Keynes, the village was bypassed by the A422 in April 1992, to allow the increasing amount of traffic to avoid the necessary 30 mph speed limit that persists in Stagsden to this day. The village has at its centre St. Leonard's Church, where High Street, Bedford Road and Church Lane all meet.
